The Baugnez 44 Historical Centre is located in Baugnez near Malmedy. The Museum is
dedicated to the Battle of the Bulge and also the “Malmedy Massacre”, the tragic
murder of American prisoners of war during this Battle. This war crime, committed
on December 17, 1944 by members of Kampfgruppe Peiper, took place in a field almost
at the same location as were the museum is at.
The museum opened its doors in December 2007 and features dioramas of the daily life
of soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge including one especially on the massacre.
The two story museum building further shows many authentic wartime materials and
unique items. Together with the authentic vehicles, photographs, original wartime
documents and films of the time, this museum takes you back to the winter of 1944
during the Battle of the Bulge.
