Ligny 1815 Museum


This museum comprises seven rooms in which you can immerse yourself in the end of the Napoleonic period and relive the intensity of Napoleon’s last victory, two days before Waterloo. Weapons, uniforms, models, maps, engravings and copperware take you on a journey about two hundred years back in time. The work entitled ‘Ligny, 16 June 1815’ and the special ‘1815’ beer, the beer of the last victory, are available exclusively in the museum shop.
