  • An interesting war museum. It is related to the Waterloo battle. There is a lot of information if you are interested in such a subject. There are also some historic information of interest not straigh...  more »
  • Located in the Centre of Waterloo, a few kilometers from the battlefield itself, this museum displays the weapons and way of life of the Allied officers that they would face and defeat, definitively, the lion of Corsica. Worth a visit where there's a 12 pound cannon with the mark of the Emperor.

  • If you want to gross out your kids in museums it's good u plan... The renovated site of the Lion is otherwise worthwhile.

  • Very cool museum build in the Duke of Wellingtons headquarters. Well worth a visit
  • Very basic museum not to much to look at
  • It is very small and does not compare to other Napoleonic collections.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Waterloo

Some of the older hotels in Waterloo have grand dining rooms, while the newer ones offer 24-hour gyms and trendy bars--all are evenly spread throughout town and within easy reach of the main attractions. Because of its proximity to Brussels, many visitors opt to travel from the capital to Waterloo as part of a day trip. Traveling from Brussels to Waterloo takes around an hour by public transport, and half that by car.
