Really good Museum, setting the scene for the battle and the visit to the battlefield itself. Plenty of original artefacts from those nights giving the public the opportunity to visit the room where Wellington slept and Uxbridge had his leg amputated.

This little museum does a great job of recounting the very narrow period in which the battle took place, and the buildup in the few days immediately preceding it. With a range of interesting and impressive exhibits - armour, uniforms, weapons, letters, diaries, and so...More

Museum is slightly boring, but serves as a good introduction when you go to see the battlefield of Waterloo.
