Musée Wellington

At the heart of Waterloo, the musée Wellington is housed on an old auberge dating from the 18th century. The Duke of Wellington, commander of the allied armies opposed to Napoléon, installed his Head Quarters in this building in June of 1815.

On the night of the battle of Waterloo, the duke composed his victory address which was then given to the British governement, in this very building.

Permanent Collection

Numerous documents, engravings, arms and authentic souvenirs are housed in the museum, and your visit will allow you to discover the roles taken by various nations during combat. A series of diagrams examine the various stages of battle, and a rare collection of arms is housed in the museum’s final room.

We encourage you to visit the museum before your visit to the battle field, in order to best understand and enjoy the latter.
