We thought we would "do" Waterloo in a day but after visiting the Wellington Museum and the museum etc at Lion's Mound on day one we started at Napoleon's Last HQ. It's an historic place with some excellent exhibits. Good audio guide.

Seemed Napoleon had slightly better quarters than Wellington and made a hasty retreat after the battle was lost. Interesting place to visit and another must for travellers exploring the Battle of Waterloo. Each of the museums in the area seemed to have something different to...More

We visited this museum after seeing Wellington's headquarters and the battlefield museum, mound and panorama, so we were a bit overloaded about the battle. Even so, it was quite interesting to see how Napoleon lived and worked, and the fact that it was his actual...More
