War Heritage Institute

Sites Closed / COVID-19

Updated on March 30

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 (through 19 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.
