Welcome to the website of the brand-new 101st Airborne museum Le Mess in Bastogne - Belgium.
The museum and its fantastic historical building will give you a great impression of the Battle of the Bulge.
Window displays with amazing lifelike scenes and mannequins will take you back to the cold winter
1944-1945 when the battle took place.
First you walk around and see what soldiers and locals did during this terrible war.
Then as a final you visit the basement with more dioramas and little items, but also with a hospital.
You see the caretaking for several wounded soldiers, and a burned motorcyclist is accompanied inside.
Behind a door you will find a bombingsexperience in a hiding shelter, together with a family.
You will hear, see and feel the loud sound they heard during wartime.
The museum is located in the city center of Bastogne, nearby the tank on the main square (350 mtr)
and is definitely worth a visit.
You can park your car for free in the street the museum is located.
Hope to see you at the museum!
