Multimedia film and mixed audio that reconstructs that sounds of war bring the stories to life. The attraction is next to the Mardasson Memorial, so consider stopping there as part of your tour of the area.

  • We left with the impression that it was the Americans (a little help from Russia) against Germany and Japan. Even the reference to North Africa hardly mentioned anyone else, it was just America.

  • Fantastic museum! Visiting any museum with two young children is always a great challenge. This museum made this easier by being interactive and entertaining even for such dramatic content.

  • An awesome museum! They have a portable audio set that is sensor activated as you walk through the museum it tells you awesome history tidbits. The audio recordings can be listened to in English which was pleasant! You can pay your tickets online and enter during a scheduled time. There is a wonderful Cafe to enjoy lunch after that accepts cards and a great gifts hope, both accept debit cards! We brought out 2 year old who LOVED the experience and was able to do everything but the last film which doesn't allow children.
  • This was an incredible museum. As someone who is quite knowledgeable about this battle, there was plenty of new and interesting material, but also plenty of more surface level material which my two companions thoroughly enjoyed. It is truly an eye opening experience about both the Battle of the Bulge and world war two as a whole, and the audio tour was well recorded and rarely had issues. I absolutely recommend visiting this museum if you find yourself in Bastogne.
