#3 of 88 in Museums in Brussels
Located in Cinquantenaire Park, Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History houses aircraft, weaponry, uniforms, and vehicles from all the nations that participated in World Wars I and II. Tightly packed into two halls in the park's northern complex, the exhibits are dense and visually stimulating. Consider combining your visit to museum with a trip to the park. The hall where the artifacts are housed was meant to be temporary, but expanded to a permanent space with a domed, glass roof that is easy to spot from most areas in the park.

  • Undiscovered and underestimated by many tourists, but actually one of the best museum sites od Brussels. You can find out how courageous Belgian nation has been and that it doesn't forget tough moments or friends. Oh, and remember about the planes 😀
  • We have visited the garden before but this was a first time for the house. Very surprised at how different and beautiful it was to other similar visits. Definitely recommend this for a visit, food was good too.
