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.

  • A great museum for all ages! There is a huge amount of things to see and you can spend hours and hours in the museum without seeing the time pass. There a lot of important and rare historical pieces and their collection is very rich. A part of the museum has been renowned not long ago which modernized the museum a lot. I highly recommend this museum if you have some time to spend in Brussels!
  • The park and then the museums are must-sees for everyone who comes to Brussels. I am avid for history and wars in particular, the museum covers it all, it is no surprise if you would take a full day or more to cover everything, as you go up till the roof! The arms going from simple knives to heavy artillery, aircrafts and navy models... It's literally wonderland, Alice! Splendid stuff!
