Discover this small museum dedicated to the 83rd American Infantry Division, which fought in the Battle of the Bulge just a few kilometres from Vielsalm.


The museum is centred on the 83rd American Infantry Division that liberated the little village of Bihain during the Second World War on 10 January 1945.

The steps of this division are traced in a reconstructed decor, emphasized with photos taken by Tony Vaccaro, a soldier reporter in this division.

You will also have the chance to visit a wagon that was used to deport Jewish prisoners to concentration camps.
