General Patton Museum General Patton Memorial Museum, Ettelbruck

4.2
#3 of 8 in Museums in Diekirch District
Dedicated to the general who liberated Ettelbruck from the Nazis in 1944, General Patton Museum General Patton Memorial Museum gives a comprehensive view of the Nazi occupation and the liberation. The two floors of the museum are densely packed with displays. The museum is small, so you can take your time browsing the weaponry, uniforms, and many photographs of the war years. Seek out the ghost army collection, which offers a handful of artwork depicting the war by artists who were also medics and soldiers. The museum also gives you the stories of both sides, so even though it is dedicated to Patton, a view of the struggles of both armies drives home the cost of war for all. You can buy tickets at the door; the attraction is rarely crowded.

The remains of the engines of aircraft found in the region are quite impressive. I asked at reception or was the General's grave. It has informed me, except that the cemetery was closed at 5 pm and it was already too late... so I did the path up to the cemetery (35 km) for nothing...

    Maybe it's because I have seen so many great museums on this trip or that I just left the Diekirch military museum. I found the museum to be average. The story of Luxembourg men forced to serve with t...  more »
