  • Well worth a visit for those who love the history of the 2nd World War and especially the battle of the bulge, authentic cellar and car in superb condition, and hat for the mechanics who restore... The guides are responsible (ps: + for bruno and olivier). Visit not to be missed.

  • They have a very nice collection of army vehicles and tanks. The guide spoke three different languages and was very kind and had a lot of knowledge about the items that where presented.  more »
  • My companion and I were delighted with this visit. Our Eric guide to summer of clarity in his explanations without entered into details which would lose the neophytes as my companion. We have learned a lot about the battle of the bulge and more on the siege of Bastogne. This place is full of history, it is an interpretation centre, which translates into many places visible or important moments of the seats of Bastogne took place (the meal of December 25, 1944, the office of the general Mcauliffe, etc.) The +: the end of the visit is dedicated to armoured vehicles restored by military personnel of the base.

  • I joined the first guided tour and the first part around the historical rooms, displayed items and weapons was excellent. Our great and entertaining guide showed an amazing knowledge and insight of events, facts and details, and managed to deliver the tour on both french and English in a excellent and natural way, repeating questions and answers in both languages. Thank you very much for a extraordinary treat 😊 👍 The second part was a walk around the garages of restored tanks, trucks, cannons and equipment. The displays in the garages was very interesting, but despite requests, the second guide did not present the tour in english, but solely entertained the french-speaking half of the group, leaving the the rest of us to make our own experience. Sorry, but that doesn't work for me - and the Dutch participants in the group also didn't seem very impressed by this approach. If the second half of the tour also included English, I would definitely rate this all 5 stars.
  • Excellent visit / free tour, very informative and tour guide enjoyed the crowd and was very informative. Drove over two hours for the visit and it was well worth it.
  • Excellent museum. They have a very nice collection of weapons, various artifacts from the battle and of course, vehicles including tanks. The only regret is that the tour is over in just 2h, I could've easily spent as much time just in the artifacts/weapons exhibit.
  • Interresting museum with many displays from WW2 with emfasesis on local history, as the barracks was used as american headquarters during the end of the war. Very large collection of both amourred and unarmourred vehicles.
  • The guide is passionate and the presented pieces are awesome. The tank museum us a must see. And in addition of it, it's free. Hands down the best museum in town
