Discovering the Military Museum is not only wandering through various galleries in order to analyse successive wars. It is of course much more, but do you actually know that? Visiting the Royal Military Museum also is admiring the Historic Gallery!
The gallery contains an exceptional array of uniforms and weapons illustrating the Belgian army in the 19th century, an era in which the industrial revolution produced new and modern destructive gear. All over the world, from Mexico to Rome, from Portugal to the Congo, from Guatemala to the USA, in Cairo, in Peking and in South Africa wars of a new kind were being fought. Belgian volunteers witnessed these or took part in them.
