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.

 

Call for testimonies and documents on the two world wars in Mons

The MMM team is looking for people who lived through the Second World War in the Mons region and who would like to give an account of what they went through so that others can learn about their experiences. We are also seeking letters, photos, personal diaries, posters, leaflets, films and any other documents relating to the war years in the city and in the surrounding countryside. Lastly, if anyone has a close relative who lived through the First World War and gave them a witness account, documents or objects, we would be glad to hear from them too.
