Remarkable women on the battlefield

Thousands of soldiers perished during the First World War. Many Belgian soldiers fell at the infamous Trench of Death. Hundreds of men were wounded there, more or less severely. In field hospitals behind the front line numerous nurses cared for the wounded. The Trench of Death museum weekend is all about these stories.



The Royal Military Museum is freely accessible every first Wednesday of the month. On Wednesday August 3, on top of the free access, we put together an activity programme for young and old, focusing on our masterpiece #100Masters, the Battaille triplane.

Come and join us at the 100-year old triplane between 1 p.m. and 4:45 p.m., for creative workshops and a fun drawing contest.
