This museum is situated in the former stagecoach station where the Duke of Wellington stayed on the nights of 17 and 18 June 1815. You can still visit the Duke's bedroom, the office where he wrote his victory report, and his aide-de-camp's bedroom...more

A good place to go before visiting the battlefield as it will give you a better understanding of what went on on that day. Some interesting things from the battle on show, plus the room that Wellington stayed in. You can catch a bus from...More
Quite an unassuming place from the outside but historically hugely important as a strategic place for Wellington during the battle. Very informative and well laid out and worth the visit before moving onto the monument down the road as a pre-cursor. Audio tour is a...More
I visited the museum with a museum professional group and thoroughly enjoyed it! I was there in 1996, 2001, and 2004, it is not far from Brussels and easily reached by motor car. The group that operates the museum and the battlefield have comp[lately resorted...More

The Wellington Museum across from the tourist office at Waterloo would be fairly interesting to you as a historian. As a previous response, there are battle maps, arms, the room where Wellington stayed, etc. However, it would be of minimal interest to you children. But, the battlefield, diorama, etc. would be interesting not only to you but also your children. As a previous response indicated, the W bus is across the street from the Wellington Museum to take you to the battlefield and the lion mound. At the top of the lion mound (many steps but fun), you have metal map diagrams for each geographical direction. Inside of the battlefield museum building next to the lion mound, you will find a brilliant 4D reenactment of the battle with hoses and men seeming to come right at you. Outstanding and your kids would like it but some parts might be a little scary for them. You will have to decide on the spot.
Would expect in September it may be a little easier to park I was there in January and the new visitor centre was under construction I would imagine parking be ok unless you have the massive mobile homes, plenty parking so... More
