Atlantic Wall Museum, Ostend
(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Admire the preserved World War I and II fortifications in their original condition at Atlantic Wall Museum. The Atlantic wall was a defense system built mostly by the Nazis during World War II to protect against the Allied forces. The museum's portion of the wall includes 2 km (1.24 mi) of trenches and 60 bunkers. Exhibits include World War II propaganda, dioramas, and photographs, as well as a cinema that screens documentaries. There are also activities for children including a treasure hunt through the museum. Be prepared for a lot of walking, as this museum covers a lot of ground, and be sure to bring an umbrella rain is in the forecase, as many of the museum's focal elements are outdoors.

  • Both the children if we ourselves have really enjoyed it. You feel the historical circumstances as you go through the underground passages of post to combat position and bunker. A great deal of respect for the historical correctness.

  • A very nice trip where you get to see a lot in a realistic way. Not just a museum, but a really active "discovery"!

  • Been three times and each time success with my family guests. Two hours walk from bunker to other verdedigingstuk, variation in what you see with interesting teaching materials. Happily there were pleasure. You get a clear picture of how it used to be. (Certainly for bad weather) is the museum at the entrance also worth.
