From May 18 till August 27 the permanent collections safeguarded by the Brussels museums receive the attention they deserve through a large-scale promotion campaign by the Brussels Museum Council. For one hundred days as many top pieces selected by an independent jury are put in the limelight.
One of these top pieces is displayed at the Royal Military Museum. For the entire duration of the promotion period the Battaille Triplane, as well as our other major objects, will be highlighted.
Looking for fun activities during summer break? Come do the new #100Masters games with your family (available: a game for 6 tot 8 year olds, one for 9 to 12 year olds and a visitor’s guide for adults. Everything can be freely downloaded (see below) or can be bought at the reception desk for 0,50 €).
Participants are treated to a fun gadget: a Vlieg heart! The heart actually is a small recorder on which the children can record a message and replay it (1 heart/game).

Thousands of soldiers perished during the First World War. Many Belgian soldiers fell at the infamous Trench of Death. Hundreds of men were wounded there, more or less severely. In field hospitals behind the front line numerous nurses cared for the wounded. The Trench of Death museum weekend is all about these stories.
The Royal Military Museum is freely accessible every first Wednesday of the month. On Wednesday August 3, on top of the free access, we put together an activity programme for young and old, focusing on our masterpiece #100Masters, the Battaille triplane.
Come and join us at the 100-year old triplane between 1 p.m. and 4:45 p.m., for creative workshops and a fun drawing contest.
