The museum and its fantastic historical building will give you a great impression of the Battle of the Bulge. This prestigious building was used by the German army as "Unteroffiziersheim" during the occupation of Bastogne in WWII. After the war it was used as a hospital by the Red Cross. This unique building with its rich history is the perfect place to gather and display the military history of the 101st Airborne Division and units involved in the Battle of Bastogne in December 1944 - January 1945. An exclusive collection of items from the Battle of the Bulge and window displays with amazing lifelike scenes and mannequins will take you back in the dramatic periode of the Battle.
First you walk around and see what soldiers and locals did during this terrible war. Then as a final you visit the basement with more dioramas and little items, but also with a hospital. You see the caretaking for several wounded soldiers, and a burned motorcyclist is accompanied inside. Behind a door you will find a bombingsexperience in a hiding shelter, together with a family. You will hear, see and feel the loud sound they heard during wartime.
