Very well designed and organised. The whole family appreciated the visited. As you stay outside most of the time it is better to avoid visiting it under the rain. It is very windy. Take a good wind breaker, gloves and something to protect your head.

We originally tried to visit late last year but the museum was undergoing renovations so our trip this time was something to look forward too. The Sat-Nav still takes you to the now closed front entrance so at the roundabout instead of turning left immediately...More

Let me revise my question: Can Any solo traveler to the Atlantic Wall Museum outside of Oostend describe his/her journey from the Brussels Airport? It appears that this Museum is open from 10:30 to 17:30 hours. Every day?? I cannot locate any website for this Museum. I assume that I should travel to Oostend, book a hotel, and then spend the next day at the Museum. Can anyone confirm my 'thinking"? Or, improve on my plan? Mahalo, Geo

You can take a train until Ostend-station and then the tramway direction De Panne. It stops at the entrance of the museum.
