Route du Lion 1815 | Champ de Bataille de Waterloo, Braine-l'Alleud 1420, Belgium
I have wanted to visit this site for quite a few years as I had seen the memorial from the highway. I did not know there was also a museum there. It is very well laid out and has a very excellent explanation of the...More
An excellent museum, very well laid out and with superb exhibitions.
The museum is clean and tidy with a good mix of interactive/informative exhibits.
Finishing off with a steep 226 step climb to the lions mound .
Outstanding museum. Very well done mannequins with uniforms. 5D animations makes you feel you were in the battle (3D + smells/smoke + rambling floor during cavalry charge). Big 360 degree diorama very well done. Then there is a 3D goggles presentation which is also very...More
The museum covers multiple historical aspects leading up to the battle in a manner that is both informative and keeps your attention. It is worth the wait for the next showing of the 3D film. The walk up the stairs to the top of the...More
What a location. A mix of memorial, museum, interactive exhibits, 3D film and of course 226 steps to the Lion. This is a must visit if you are in the area. We did it easily by public transport from Brussels at a 10 euro day...More
Unsurprisingly, if you only visit one Warerloo attraction, this is it. Lots of information on the developments leading to the battle and a wide range of exhibits. Really good 3D show. All topped off with a climb to the top of the mound. But beware,...More
I, myself, is a history geek but a museum on this scale is just marvelous. There is details about every part of this battle with many interactive displays and a great 3D Theatre. You must spend at least half a day on this museum in...More
Museum at Waterloo Battlefield would be a better and more descriptive name.... one of the best historical event museums anywhere in the world. It is only three years old as it was built to commemorate two hundred years since that fateful battle that affected so...More
We had a great experience - and did not do any kind of formal tour. You can see all of the exhibits, go to the top of the mound, etc. without any kind of guide. We did the 3-D movie as well. Definitely no tour... More

I found the visitors centre and museum were excellent. I think doing them at your own pace would be the best thing. You could easily spend 2-3 hrs walking through listening to the self paced tour. After that enjoying the panorama and the view from the monument. There is a good pub at the site for lunch also. Hope this helps.
