Discover a place of unique history !

A space dedicated to reflection, investigation and interaction, a museum… These are some of the different ways you could describe the Mons Memorial Museum. Above all, it’s a venue where people from all generations are able to come and meet and interact right in the heart of a Memorial Region marked by the two world wars that turned the 20th century upside down.

The Mons Memorial Museum invites visitors of all ages to question the multiple, complex realities of the phenomena of war.

Through the fates of the men and women who witnessed events, visitors are immersed in the day-to-day lives of soldiers and civilians in times of peace, of war and of occupation.

The exhibits on display, selected from the 5,000 included in the military history collections belonging to the City of Mons, ask some fundamental questions about the relationship between the civilian and military population. These questions come to life in an experience that will guide visitors from the middle Ages, through the “Ancien Régime”, right up to the two World Wars.

 

Sherman tank

From 30 August, a Sherman tank will take up its position on the Esplanade Dolez, opposite Mons Memorial Museum. This vehicle, so symbolic of the liberation of our regions, will be permanently housed in Mons to remind us of this important period of our history.
