Bastogne War Museum

The Bastogne War Museum took in the location of the former Bastogne Historical Center. 1,600 square metres in this Ardennes town are completely dedicated to the Battle of the Bulge, also known as the Ardennes Offensive, and the Second World War in general.

The Battle of the Bulge took place in December 1944 and January 1945. It became one of the bloodiest pages of 20th century history. Tens of thousands of soldiers and civilians lost their lives during the winter of 44-45.

The Nazis planned the Ardennes Offensive near the end of World War II in the utmost secrecy. They expected the element of surprise to be a major advantage in defeating the allied forces at the western front. Bastogne – together with Malmedy, St. Vith, Stavelot and many others – was one of those places where the battle was extremely fierce.

Bastogne, today a modern town in the Belgian Ardennes, is still mostly dedicated to the battles that have been fought in the region.
