Napoleon’s Last Headquarters is the only Napoleonic museum in Belgium. It was at this former farmhouse that Napoleon devised his strategy and drew up his battle plans.

Located 4 km from the Mound of the Lion, the museum’s authentic period interior is home to a host of items of which the majority come from the French army, and they include the Emperor’s camp bed.

In the layout of the Last Headquarters, visitors will be better able to soak up this historic location and gain a better understanding of history, while having fun. The focus is on the events of the night of 17 to 18 June and many stories from civil and military life. Audio guides tracing the course of the Battle will accompany you from room to room, following the fate of various protagonists.

To guarantee access for all, the museum has developed different reading levels for adults and children. Particular attention is also paid to those with mobility problems, the partially sighted and the hard of hearing.
