Located in Cinquantenaire Park, Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History houses aircraft, weaponry, uniforms, and vehicles from all the nations that participated in World Wars I and II. Tightly packed into two halls in the park's northern complex, the exhibits are dense and visually stimulating. Consider combining your visit to museum with a trip to the park. The hall where the artifacts are housed was meant to be temporary, but expanded to a permanent space with a domed, glass roof that is easy to spot from most areas in the park.

  • Huge collection, but missing english descriptions.
  • Absolutely fantastic Museum derailing this history of the Belgium military can easily spend a few hours in here as its huge inside! Feels like it's 4/5 museums in one. Only a few displays are in English as everything is in French and Dutch however, there is still plenty to see. It is FREE with the Brussels cards (€11 if not in April 2022) and this also gives you entry to the Aviation Museum next door and access to the roof for amazing panoramic views from the top of the arch. Definitely recommend visiting when in Brussels but make sure you give yourself plenty of time!
