Great museum. Really liked the aeronautics hangar - many great planes there. But the whole museum was great and worth walking through and all that for no fee.

A wide range of interesting exhibits. If you're interested at all in military and belgian history, you could spend quite some time here. Recommend taking the audio guide. The cafe is a good place to take in the many planes.

Expected a narrow set of displays devoted to Belgium only with an emphasis on the Battle of Waterloo and WWI. The exhibits go far beyond that, back to medieval times and to contemporary conflicts. The museum has uniforms, weapons, including tanks and planes and even...More

You can easily spend a couple of hours wandering around the museum which documents Belgian military history. The information for a lot of the uniforms and weapons is very dated but it's impressive seeing the collection. I learnt a lot about Belgian history from visiting.

Best way is by Metro. Stop at Schuman and and ask for Park Cinquantenaire. It is on the left once you cross the Arch de Triumph.

If you want to visit every hall and floor, you need a day for an extensive visit and a few hours for a walk-through.

Hello Mathew. An audioguide is available in English. Most of the information displayed is in Dutch and in French.
