War Heritage Institute

Sites Closed / COVID-19

On Thursday 12 March the National Security Council and the federal government took additional measures in an effort to curb the corona virus pandemic (COVID-19) in our country. Among other measures, and as a sanitary precaution, gatherings in confined spaces are forbidden and “social distance” is recommended.

The War Heritage Institute will therefore be closed to visitors for the next three weeks (through 3 April). This decision with immediate effect is applied to our six sites (i.e.: Royal Military Museum Brussels, Fort Breendonk, Trench of Death Dixmude, Bastogne Barracks, Gunfire Brasschaat, Kemmelberg bunker). It will be re-evaluated later.

Our services can nevertheless be reached by phone, e-mail or social networks.
