The 83rd Infantry Division Museum

Reconstitution au musée de la 83rd Infantry Division.
A museum dedicated to the journey of the 83rd American Infantry Division, from Normandy to Berlin, is not to be missed if you are a war history buff.

The liberation of a village on the Ardennes front

On January 10, 1945, the 83rd American Infantry Division liberated the village of Bihain. This museum traces its history through incredibly realistic settings.

Portrait of Tony Vaccaro
P. Ghislain

One of the most famous photos of the Second World War, “The White Death” by Tony Vaccaro, a GI reporter in this division, is shown in a slide show. From 1944 to 1945, he took war photographs that made him famous: from the Normandy landings to the Battle of the Bulge, the conquest of Germany, and the fall of Berlin.

The museum also features an authentic railway car that bears witness to the grim history of the deportation of Jewish prisoners, as well as a bunker- elements that make the visit exciting and moving.
