Found this museum far more interesting than the War Museum. Outstanding wax figures throughout the museum. As others have stated, be sure to go into the basement and sit through the air raid simulation. Phenomenal.

Plan at least an hour for your visit. Great window box displays with plenty of interesting items to look at. Great photos allover the place as well. Has a basement "simulation" of a bombing. Really good.

Great museum with personal effects & memorabilia from the soldiers who fought in the battle here. The simulated bombing raid in the basement certainly makes you think about what people went through.

Well worth a visit if you are in Bastogne. Plenty of exhibits and good value for money. Check out the 'Bastogne experience' in the cellar which gives a great recreation of life during the Battle of the Bulge in Bastogne.

The museum it self is very small. But I took a day to see around so. There is a lot to see and visit.
