  • 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!
