Royal Museum of the Army and Military History#6 in Best Things To Do in Brussels
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 the world's violent past back to the Middle Ages, displaying weaponry, uniforms, documents and technology from various points in time. You should spend a fair amount of time in the airplane hangar, which features 80 different aircraft. The museum also hosts educational activities for all ages, making it a great place for children and adults to explore.
Recent travelers said they were impressed by the extensive collection of military memorabilia present at the museum. Many enjoyed being able to get up close and personal with the aircraft featured in the aviation area. One complaint travelers had was that there were little placards in English.
The museum is free and is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. For more information, check out the Royal Museum of the Army and Military History website.
