Fabulous looking building ... amongst a few stunning buildings. No time to go in but looked through the huge glass windows at the side to see tanks, planes etc. if you were interested in this kind of memorabilia, you’d love this collection

For a low entry fee you can spend a whole day in this fine museum. Even old aero planes from the beginning of the 20th century are at display.

This nice museum does a great job of displaying its many significant military artifacts. The plane collection is especially impressive. We enjoyed the panoramic views from the top of the museum. All-in-all, a very worthwhile stop for folks in the Brussels area.

Best way is by Metro. Stop at Schuman and and ask for Park Cinquantenaire. It is on the left once you cross the Arch de Triumph.

If you want to visit every hall and floor, you need a day for an extensive visit and a few hours for a walk-through.
