Exhibition "1944 - Tournai, a liberated but ruined city"

Book ONLINE your visit to the Military History Museum !

After having been bombed by the Luftwaffe in May 1940, which reduced the historic heart of the city to ashes, and after having seen all its bridges blown up during the Battle of the Scheldt, Tournai was hit by Allied air raids four years later.

When the time of liberation came, American and British soldiers were warmly welcomed on 2 and 3 September 1944.

But the joy does not hide the distress of having to rebuild almost everything...
