This museum is dedicated to the memory of American General George S. Patton, who helped liberate the city of Ettelbruck from German occupation in 1944. Inaugurated in 1995 in Ettelbruck, it contains a rich collection of photographs and documents tracing the history of the German invasion in the region.
Ettelbruck is actually nicknamed “Patton Town.” Since 1954 the city has celebrated “Remembrance Day,” a day dedicated to the memory of the city’s liberation and General Patton. The museum features a ten-foot statue of the General and some of his personal items.
One section of the exhibition is also dedicated to the Battle of the Bulge. An impressive collection of weapons and equipment are listed. The concluding section of the museum tells the story of the air war in Luxembourg.
