Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History
Situated in Brussels’s expansive Parc Cinquantenaire, the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History features a number of military-related pieces.

The Basics
A walk through this museum reveals permanent exhibits sorted by theme or geography, with Dutch and Russian galleries, a tank area and an aviation hall, and a special gallery devoted to World War I. Occasionally you might catch a themed temporary exhibition.
