The museum originally developed out of the Diekirch Historical Museum, which was primarily dedicated to the Battle of the Bulge in Luxembourg in winter 1944–45. The museum is located in the complex of the Diekirch 'old brewery'.
The main topic of the museum remains the balanced and objective historical representation of the military operations in the Ardennes from the American, German, and civilian points of view. Over 3000 square metres of exhibition space and numerous lifesize dioramas enable an insight of the dramatic and tragic situations that both soldiers and civilians were caught in. Special showrooms feature extensive collections of weapons, uniforms, military equipment of all kind, wheeled and tracked vehicles, in addition to numerous personal soldiers' belongings, photographs, documents, and maps. The museum’s core piece is the detailed mock-up of the night-time Sauer river crossing at Diekirch on January 18, 1945 by units of the United States 5th Infantry Division. The museum's World War II collection is regarded as one of the finest of Western Europe.
MNHM National Museum of Military History reviews
This is our third time visiting this museum and it is nice to see how they are expanding and adding to the museum. My husband and son absolutely love this museum! They have dragged me to all sorts..... more »
War museums tends to be quite over whelming when you take the time to think about what terrible things that actually did happen. This museum is not the biggest one I have seen, but on the other hand..... more »
Wonderful collection. Amazing how they have showed the historical events. It looks so realistic. I have never seen this before. How they have managed to collect such an enormous amount of original items. And there is so many rooms filled with it. I thought only to spend one hour or so. It became more than two hours and could not see all because of time. An must see for everybody.
Had a wonderful tour at the national military history Museum in Luxenberg. They have an excellent staff that gives a great tour of the entire museum. It is a wonderful place to learn the history of World War II and learn how Luxenberg played an important role during World War II in the battle of the bulge
