This was a great day trip for anyone who loves military aircraft and modern history. If you don’t, still have a day out here as the sights from the top of the building are amazing!

There are a lot of interesting pieces, particulary airplanes and helicopters. A nice bar where you can eat and drink inside the exposition. It has to be visited by all the air force history lovers.

Best way is by Metro. Stop at Schuman and and ask for Park Cinquantenaire. It is on the left once you cross the Arch de Triumph.

If you want to visit every hall and floor, you need a day for an extensive visit and a few hours for a walk-through.
