|About these ratings|
For those of you interested in military history, this museum makes for a great afternoon. Located in the Cinquantenaire district, the Royal Museum of the Army and Military History (Musée Royal de l'Armée et d' Histoire Militaire) traces Belgium's more violent past back to the Middle Ages, with displays featuring weaponry and uniforms from various military campaigns. You should spend a fair amount of time in the airplane hangar, which features 130 different planes. The museum also hosts special events throughout the year, including those marking the anniversaries of major military episodes. There is also a gift shop and a small cafe on the premises, but as one recent visitor tells TripAdvisor, "The only downside is that it closes for lunch."
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. with an hour long lunch break at noon. For more information, check out the Royal Museum of the Army and Military History website.
