Bastogne War Museum

Recommended
Situated at the town's north exit, this brand new museum dedicated to the memory of the Second World War is impressive, for its star-shaped building, over 1 600m2, and scenography, which is original and interactive. Immersion guaranteed in the heart of the Battle of the Bulge, through a circuit accompanied by an audio-guide, with, en route, "sceno-visions" showing four people caught up in the conflict. Light is also shone on the immediate aftermath of the war, when the region was taking stock of the scope of the disaster.
