I visited here with my nephew as we're both army history aficionados, and man was this place cool. Plenty of aircraft, tanks, uniforms and an overview of Belgian's martial traditions. It's pretty simple and bare-bones as a museum, which just accentuates the history on display.

I was taken to this museum as a quick way to fill an afternoon. I expected to be gently involved but nothing more, but in the event I was enchanted. The place is packed with a wealth of material from the age of armour to...More

Entry was only €4 for a student, which was reasonable. We spent a long time wandering around, an hour, perhaps more. There was LOTS to see, though little to read as the exhibits had little writing at all. And if there was writing (eg, the...More

It had a lot of uniforms and there were parts being renovated. It might have been because it was my last museum for this trip or because there was little in English, but for me it was not spatular.

It is a big museum. It is very interesting for those who like history of World Wars mostly and the military equipment that has used that time. The most significant thing about the museum, is that it makes you understand how people lived back then...More

The airplane collection is unbelievable. Unfortunately most of the displays are missing exterior parts and have flat tires. Since this exhibit is free one can't complain about the price. If you in the area and LOVE aviation it may be worth your time.

Enormous collection but the better part is old fashioned and even completely out of time. Hand-written (!) labels and only in French and Flemish. The collection airplanes is in the wing opposite Autoworld and the difference in maintenance of the same infrastructure is absolutely shocking....More

Best way is by Metro. Stop at Schuman and and ask for Park Cinquantenaire. It is on the left once you cross the Arch de Triumph.

How long does it roughly take to see everything in the museum?

If you want to visit every hall and floor, you need a day for an extensive visit and a few hours for a walk-through.
