Long Description:

This unique memory center is dedicated to the Second World War through the particular history of the Battle of the Bulge. The visitor is put in an immersive experience thanks to three multi-sensory shows making it possible to follow the journey of four characters in the heart of the conflict.

Through sets, testimonies, multimedia installations, films, the route appeals to intelligence but also to emotions, making visitors feel that this story concerns them, each and every one, personally.

The course is punctuated by interactive terminals intended for young people and schools. Supervised activities on various themes are offered by reservation.
Prominent objects evoke the “little” history of individuals as well as the “great” history of peoples.

In addition to a permanent exhibition, the Bastogne War Museum regularly comes across temporary display cases which are part of a project entitled "Bulles d'Histoire". These ephemeral showcases are bound to change, to evolve according to the loans, partnerships and donations that we receive. The goal ? Make you discover new objects as steeped in history as they are unusual. Whether around a specific theme or not, these objects will tell you their stories.

Ce centre de mémoire unique est consacré à la Seconde Guerre mondiale à travers l’histoire particulière de la Bataille des Ardennes. Le visiteur est plongé dans une expérience immersive grâce à trois spectacles multi sensoriels permettant de suivre le parcours de quatre personnages au cœur du conflit.

Au travers de décors, de témoignages, d’installations multimédias, de films, le parcours en appelle à l’intelligence mais aussi aux émotions, en faisant sentir aux visiteurs que cette histoire les concerne, chacun et chacune, personnellement.

Le parcours est ponctué de bornes interactives destinées au public jeune et scolaire. Des animations encadrées sur divers thèmes leur sont proposées sur réservation.
Des objets de premier plan évoquent la « petite » histoire des individus comme la « grande » Histoire des peuples.

En plus d'une exposition permanente, le Bastogne War Museum met régulièrement en place des vitrines temporaires qui s'inscrivent dans un projet intitulé "Bulles d'Histoire". Ces vitrines éphémères sont amenées à changer, à évoluer en fonction des prêts, partenariats et dons que nous recevons. Le but ? Vous faire découvrir de nouveaux objets aussi chargés d'histoire qu'insolites. Que ce soit autour d'une thématique précise ou non, ces objets vous raconteront leur(s) histoire(s).
