From medieval armours to the F-16 jet: the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and Military History presents 12 centuries of military history through uniforms, weapons and heavy machinery. On top of that, it accomodates an Air and Space Hall with 130 airplanes and a brand new Antarctica room. The terraces on top of the Cinquantenaire gallery offer a panoramic view over the Belgian capital. The museum organizes temporary exhibitions on a wide thematical range as well.
Snapshots- Echoes of silence
As part of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and the discovery of the horror of the Nazi camps, this exhibition shows what remains of the concentration camps and extermination centers today. The places that Luc Mary-Rabine photographed in black-and-white are now deserted, but they still show what happened. The silence triggers a thought process. Nature has somewhat erased the visible traces of the horror and reclaimed its rights. This gives rise to hope: “this never again”.
