Belgio / Museo
The Manhay History 44 Museum tells the stories of the Battle of the Ardennes in the Manhay, Lierneux and Erezée Sectors in Belgium.
Inside the museum are detailed displays, unique artefacts and explanations about the battles that took place during the Ardennes Offensive from December 1944 to January 1945.
The museum is designed to look like the streets of the villages did back then. The diorama helps to explain what the battle was like from both the American and German perspective, but also remembers the impact on the local civilians who were caught up in the battle.
The museum opened to the public in December 2018 during the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. Every year, on the anniversary of the battle there is a reenactors encampment and vehicles display here that are open to the public. This includes a small militaria show and entertainment. The event is a great way to explore and learn the history with help from living history groups, who offer explanations of the equipment and vehicles.
