Fodor's Review

In the Musée National d'Histoire Militaire, more than a dozen life-size, authentically equipped dioramas depict personal aspects of the hardships of the Battle of the Bulge. Unlike the similarly themed museum at Bastogne in Beligum, this thoughtful, neutral effort sidesteps discussions of strategies and fronts; it brings out individual details instead, from yellowed letters and K rations to propaganda flyers—both German and American—scattered to demoralize already homesick soldiers at Christmastime. All paraphernalia are authentic period pieces. The staff often welcomes veterans personally. Other exhibits illustrate Luxembourg military history since the end of the Napoléonic Wars.
