Atlantic Wall Museum, Ostend

4.7
Admire the preserved World War I and II fortifications in their original condition at Atlantic Wall Museum. The Atlantic wall was a defense system built mostly by the Nazis during World War II to protect against the Allied forces. The museum's portion of the wall includes 2 km (1.24 mi) of trenches and 60 bunkers. Exhibits include World War II propaganda, dioramas, and photographs, as well as a cinema that screens documentaries. There are also activities for children including a treasure hunt through the museum. Be prepared for a lot of walking, as this museum covers a lot of ground, and be sure to bring an umbrella rain is in the forecase, as many of the museum's focal elements are outdoors.

  • Great experience! Fantastic restoration work! It was a thrill just walking true that maze and experiencing what it would have been like so many years ago...!
  • Be there before 15h because otherwise you won't have the time to do both parts (1st and 2nd world war). It's a closed circuit so you can't start the second part after 17h.
