La Roche Museum

Of the Battle of the Ardennes

British participation during the Allied counter-attack

The theme of this museum is the Battle of the Bulge, especially from the Brittish perspective. More than 100 mannequins in uniform and 20 military vehicles are exhibited on three floors. Besides that, the collection of the museum contains a large number of weapons and other equipment, as well as photographs and personal items. Dioramas depict the various episodes of the Battle of the Bulge.
During the winter of 1944-45 the town of La Roche-en-Ardenne was submerged in fierce fighting. The town was almost completely destroyed after the final conquest by the Allies. Photographic records of destruction is of course to be found in this museum.
