  • I very good museum!! I highly recommend going here, even if you know nothing about Warerloo (like me). I ended up learning a lot. The museum is very interactive and fun. My friends stressed that they don't like going to museums, but they all said that this was a very fun museum and they enjoyed it. There are so many different sections like the lion's mound, a movie theater, interactive quizzes, a panorama of the battlefield. There's something for everyone here! It is worth your time and money, no doubt.
  • The museum is a really nice experience! There are interactive activities and information which make it more enjoyable for visitors regardless of the age! There is a coffee place in front as well where you can enjoy your breakfast or lunch!
