Royal Military Museum

The Royal Military Museum in the Brussels Jubilee Park is one of the largest military museums in the world. Constituted in 1910 the collections illustrate more than 10 centuries of military history on some 40,000 m2.
Discover mediaeval armour, military uniforms, medals, weapons and combat equipment, alongside 130 aircraft in the Aviation Hall.
Our Museum focuses on the two world wars, through extensive permanent exhibitions illustrating all aspects of these very dark pages in our history.
Icing on the cake: the breath-taking view over Brussels from the Arcade rooftop terraces.
