A Window open onto History
The museum is situated in the former stagecoach station where the Duke of Wellington stayed on the nights of 17 and 18 June 1815. You can still visit the Duke’s bedroom, the office where he wrote his victory report, and his aide-de-camp’s bedroom.
Various other rooms have been dedicated, each to an army, including authentic documents, etchings, weapons and souvenirs of the various nations that took part in the combat. There is also an impressive collection of rare weapons, such as “la Suffisante”, a cannon manufactured in Douai, France in 1813 and abandoned on the battlefield. Each round weight 6 lbs.
Your individual ticket for entry into the museum entitles you to an audio guide available in various languages. Duration of the visit: 50 minutes.
