In Bastogne we went to the museum Bastogne Historical Center. The museum was next to the monument Le Mardasson. This is a monument for the 76,890 American soldiers killed in action during the Battle of the Bulge. It is a big star as used by the allies. You can walk through, or around, or on it. It gives a fabulous view over the battlefields of Bastogne. There are also orientation tables to explain where you can find each town and village.
Bastogne Historical Center is a good museum with a lot of uniforms. The movie there seems not that interesting for everyone. There were a few people who couldn’t stop talking all the time.
There was also a big store next to this museum with a lot of English and French books. But there was also a lot of things about D-day, almost half of this shop was filled with it.
We started this day with a nice museum in Bastogne Au Pays d’Ardenne (From the region the Ardennes). This museum consists of three parts: one with old tools, one about the animals that lives in the Ardennes and one about the war.
