Take advantage of your stay with us to discover the rich history of the Ardennes. The National Museum of Military History in Diekirch, Luxembourg was established in 1982 by a group of enthusiasts and volunteers. Since then, it has grown in popularity and is now recognized globally for its impartial and fair representation of historical events. It wants to promote cooperation and peace by keeping the memory of the atrocities of war alive.

The museum achieves its mission through its vast collection of exhibits. Such include life-size dioramas, thematic exhibits, weaponry, uniforms, vehicles, military gear, countless original photographs, and personal artifacts. These displays vividly portray how the combats of 1944/45 affected the region from the perspective of American, German, and civilian viewpoints. The museum’s top priority is to keep the memory of these events alive. It does so without resorting to simplistic analyses or black-and-white dualism. In total, the museum covers more than 3,500 square meters, immersing visitors in an experience that brings history to life.

The museum’s significance lies in its contribution to passing on the torch of remembrance to future generations. As the number of first-hand carriers of memory inevitably decreases, the museum aims to inform the public of the horrors of war through a different approach. By providing informative and impartial exhibits, the National Museum of Military History intends to promote peace and cooperation by keeping the memory of war alive. In doing so, the museum helps to ensure that we don’t forget the lessons learned from the past.
