The Wellington Museum reviews
Nice museum with interesting article. Tells the story more from Wellington's view rather than Napolean. Definetly worth a visit as part of the Waterloo tour.

quick visit .. if you have time it's worth seeing. Interesting Lego exhibition, besides you can see the rest of the museum in 30 minutes (some paintings, rooms, some weapons, a leg ...).

Great lmprovement since my last visit . It seems to be the only place that does not suggest that Napoleon win the Battle of Waterloo !
A small but an extremely informative museum. Well worth the price of admission.
