The National museum of military history Diekirch might looks a bit old and dusty. But do they have stuff stacked inside this building….
At the enterance you are welcomed by a couple of tanks and cannons, wich invites you to take out your camera directly!
Inside you are welcomed by the friendy host and the tour can start. Very nice displays and a lot of vehicules on the second Floor (wich seems odd fo ra buiolding like that). But we are 100% sure you will like all these vehicules, wich makes this museum extea special.
“Created in 1984 by collectors and volunteers, enthusiasts of military history, the National Museum of Military History (MNHM) illustrates in most realistic possible ways and in any impartiality, the course of the 2nd World War in particular the Battle of the Bulge 1944-45 by dioramas in the scale1/1, showing both forces in presence, American and German, and illustrating at best the way soldiers and civilians lived this drama.”
One of the displays is very impressive: the crossing of the sauer River: a group of US soldiers pushing their boat to an unknown faith.
