The museum’s goal is to pass on the experiences that are shared by veterans, but who will one day no longer be around to do so. That is why the museum aims to describe objectively and impartially the events that took place during the World Wars. In 3500 square meters, one discovers the American, German but also the civilian point of view. Besides that, the museum shares the history of the Luxembourg army during the two Great Wars, the Korean War, and during humanitarian missions.
