Musée National d'Histoire Militaire


Set in a former brewery in the town centre, Luxembourg's national military history museum is packed full of WWII equipment, vehicles and memorabilia. Numerous well-executed mannequin scenes powerfully illustrate the suffering and hardships of the battles fought in the thick snows of Christmas 1944.
