The Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History is an incredibly extensive museum that displays a thorough history of the evolution of military technology, uniforms, and weaponry throughout 10 centuries of Belgian history. Originally, the museum began as a simple display of military artifacts at the 1910 World Exhibition by a single man named Louis Leconte. His display was so popular that his collection quickly received government funding and by 1923, a full military museum was opened in the Jubilee Park. From medieval swords to an entire hangar of planes (including an F-16), the museum truly covers a large span of military and technological history making the museum a must see for any history buff!
