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 ...).

The overview or the batlle itself is certenly good as starting point. Just across the touristic info office. I recommend the passaport ticket from the tourist office. Valid for a year to visit 4 historic spots.
nice museum! there was quite a lot to see for affordable tickets!
