The December 44 Historical Museum can be found in La Gleize, in the northern part of the Belgian Ardennes. The museum, housed in a historic building, focuses entirely on the Battle of the Bulge, which was fought between December 1944 and January 1945. Historical artefacts illustrate the course of the battle.
In December 1944, when the Allies had advanced unto the Belgian Ardennes, they were completely surprised by three German armies. This was the beginning of the Ardennes Offensive or ‘Battle of the Bulge’. It was a last desperate attempt of the German Wehrmacht to cut through the allied lines. The battle lasted more than six weeks and took many lives on both sides.
