Musée National de la Resistance - Rue van Lint

The Musée National de la Resistance (the Museum of the Belgian resistance) is located at 14 Rue Van Lint, 1070 Anderlecht, not far from  the Gare du Midi on the outskirts of Brussels and is probably best reached by taxi-cab.

The museum boasts a vast and fascinating collection of false ID papers, weapons, clandestine printing presses, clothing, photos and communications equipment.

The museum needs the support of Secret Army fans if it is to survive, as it receives no government funding and is in danger of being absorbed by the Belgian National Army Museum which already has a small section on evasion lines.

Opening Times: The museum is open from 0900 to 1200, 1300 to 1600 (except Wednesdays and public holidays) and admission is free. However, it is always a good idea to call in advance of your visit: 02/5224041
