All reviews audio guide german soldier war museum young boy school teacher mardasson memorial interactive displays take your time included in the price head set three hours entrance fee several languages two hours an american well worth the visit personal stories
I was in the area and hoped to get a look at this museum which had good feedback. Unfortunately the museum (and most of the others in Bastogne) was closed for the annual shutdown which lasts until February for this museum. I would have thought...More
Has interesting artifacts but also tells story from civilians perspective. I’m American and went thinking I would learn more about story of American Soldiers, I left with a much deeper understanding on what the Belgium people experienced. I felt ignorant for not knowing their story...More
A 4 languages, interactive museum, integrating the Battle of the Ardennes in the full history of the Second World War. You follow the lives of 4 persons that have gone through the 'Battle of the Bulge', assisted by an automatic audiophone. Next to the museum...More
Well done Bastogne Belgium! What an amazing Museum! This is a must see! Take the Audio Tour, you will be very happy you did! My Wife who is not a War buff at all because she endured my year-long Vacation to Iraq in 2003 loved...More
My son is in the Air Force, stationed in nearby Germany. So when my 84 year old, disabled dad decided to come along with me to spend Christmas with my son, we had to look for places to take him that would be easier for...More
This is not the first time that I visit this incredible museum but this time it was to meet some recognized writers like Martin
It’s a MUST do where I always take my guest while discovering the battle of the Bulge
The museum can be visited in 2 - 3 hours. You obtain an audio guide, and walk at your own pace. The armoured vehicles are most impressive. Also the tale of 4 people who lived the battle of the bulge grips you as you walk...More
Very well-presented, and tech-savvy review of the "to-the-Rhine" campaign of the allies in '44. Excellent review of the war from multiple perspectives, civilians included. Several A/V segments should not be missed. Audio guide important. Suffice to say, gripping and compelling experience.
This is one of the better WWII museums that we have visited. It is one the outskirts of Bastogne and a little hard to find (our GPS kept on taking us down country lanes) but well worth the time. It is reasonably priced and has...More

If he fought in the battle his unit would be listed on the American memorial in Bastogne. As far as what each individual unit did I would look it up on the Internet. The memorial is at least 5 stories high in the shape of a star. The units are shown on the columns. White marble if I remember right. It was VERY impressive. Hope this helps.

Hi Edel, lucky you, this is a wonderful area to visit, and yes you will need a car. But with only 3 days you have big choices to make. Do you want a variety of things to do or do you want to concentrate on WW11... More
Hi Edel, lucky you, this is a wonderful area to visit, and yes you will need a car. But with only 3 days you have big choices to make. Do you want a variety of things to do or do you want to concentrate on WW11 commemoration. The Bastogne War Museum and US Mardasson Memorial is a must. The museum tells the story of 4 people from different backgrounds and is very well done. Loads of information online about this. In Bastogne itself is McAuliffe Square with a memorial to US General McAuliife, famous for his 'Nuts' retort to a German request. there is also a US tank and Liberty Marker 1145. The last Liberty Marker 1147 is at the War Museum. The December 44 Museum at La Gleize is another one and has the big German Tiger tank outside. We found this one well worth a visit. In La Roche en Ardenne the Ardennes Museum is well laid out and also worth a visit. La Roche itself is a lovely town to wander around and has a very nice Chinese restaurant on the river and a nice Parc de Rompre with interesting features.. The caves at Hotton make a nice relief from the War interests and on the way from La Roche you will pass the British Sherman tank Northampton from where you get a lovely view of the town. Just round the corner from there is the Memorial to the Scottish 51st Division (park at the Tank and walk to the memorial) Durbuy, reputed to be the smallest town in the world, is quaint and has a lovely Topiary Park. I hope this helps and you can find more information online about these places.
