LA ROCHE-EN-ARDENNE
Museum of the Battle of the Ardennes


Photos 11061172.JPGThe collection on display in our museum comes exclusively from private collectors. This exhibition is the outcome of more than 20 years of research and enthusiasm. A photographic report helps you to observe the destruction of La Roche by the allies during the winter of 1944-45. The exhibition currently consists of 20 vehicles, more than 100 dummies in period uniforms, miscellaneous weaponry and equipment, and the usual apparatus and gear used by the different armies during these battles. As you proceed past the display cases you will discover reconstructions of the salient episodes in the battle of the Ardennes--presented in diorama form. The realism of the various military operations is heightened by the background frescoes, painted by the masterly hand of Marcel Delleur, an artist and set designer. Installed in an old renovated garage on three floors in the town centre.
