  • Been there twice now. Great way to do a museum. You see different aspects and views of the battle instead of it being one sided. Makes you really get a feel for how everyone felt. The theaters are amazing as well, don't skip them. Place is always clean, and staff is very friendly.
  • Amazing museum. It definitely represents the story of Bastogne and other towns near it, very well. The audio tour is a bit over the top because it presents a lot of information, maybe a bit too much. The interactive show in the middle of the tour was amazing and very instructive.
