The Bastogne War Museum is a World War II museum focusing on the Battle of the Bulge. It is located a few kilometers northeast of the Bastogne city center in the Belgian province of Luxembourg. It can be reached in about an hour and a half by car from Brussels.

The museum is located on the former Bastogne Historical Centre site and was opened in March 21, 2014 after four years of work.[1][2][3] According to the museum's official website over 800 guests attended the grand opening ceremony.[4] The building is built in a unique five-point American star shape similar to the Mardasson Memorial which is located on the same grounds.
