  • The Wellington Museum is located in the House where the Duke of Wellington, spent the night before and after the battle of Waterloo and wrote your expedition to Waterloo to Lord Bathurst, British Secretary of war, early in the morning after the battle. (18 June 1815). The Museum contains information on the Duke of Wellington, the Waterloo campaign, the main stages of the battle of Waterloo. Has a gallery and contemporary military artifacts of the armies that fought in the battle and a showroom with pictures of each phase of the battle.

  • Located right in the city centre, on the main street, opposite the Church St-Joseph and near the Maison du Tourisme. As a Museum, leaves something to be desired, especially compared to the Museum that has the Lion's Mound, because there's not much collection. But here also sells the tickets to other attractions in the city, so you'll end up going through it.

  • What I liked best was the original floor in some of the rooms, I could kind of sense Wellington walking there... Other than that it's ok, but not something you dont't want to miss.
  • A real museum of the last century. Things to see if you have time. If you have a short time better go to the leon du battle.
  • We start from this Museum, small, well described and with the audio guide is the perfect introduction to everything you could visit in Waterloo. Note the legendary wooden leg and the history that surrounds it. It's well worth the ticket omni sympathetic, with butte de lion and the headquarters of Napoleon, all a short distance away and see!
