    The war museum to Bastogne, at the Mardasson, is absolutely worth it. On the basis of a few characters is the fight here. Very impressive and with the technical implementation you have guaranteed an impressive experience of this impressive battle..

    The Bastogne War Museum is a modern memorial. There are interactive exhibitions which outline the context of the causes, events and consequences of the Second World War but through the prism of the Battle of the Bulge. Very informative as well as enjoyable. The story of the Battle of the Bulge is told through the experience of four diverse individuals who lived through it in an interactive exhibit. There is an audio tour and three films plus numerous exhibits. Easily spend a day here. The staff are helpful and friendly.

    Probably one of the best museum I've ever been to. It tells the story of the area by following 4 individuals (American soldier, German soldier, Belgian kid, Belgian teacher) and uses unique and different multimedia tools. Highly recommend. If you're within 2 hours and even mildly interested in World War 2 you have to check it out.

    Nice museum that tells the story of a town under siege. It was interesting to learn about Belgium during the war. There are some nice shows / movies that give an impression about life during the siege. The most impressing part is the shot-out sherman tank.

    Fantastic displays with great video presentations along the tour. The memorial is respectful and honoring to those who served. Thank for preserving their memories with your tribute.
