101st Airborne Museum Le Mess – Bastogne, Belgium

The 101st Airborne museum in Bastogne is located in the former officers mess building of the Belgian Army, built in 1936. This prestigious building was used by the German army as “Unteroffiziersheim” during the occupation of Bastogne in WWII. After the war it was used as a hospital by the Red Cross. This unique building with its rich history is the perfect place to gather and display the military history of the 101st Airborne Division and units involved in the Battle of Bastogne in December 1944 – January 1945. The building is restored in its former glory without losing its character.
