Beyond the Great War 1918-1928

Army Museum

  • Expo

After the First World War both Belgium and the rest of the world saw fundamental changes. Society had to come to terms with damage and grief, but at the same time experienced a great revival. Through its exhibition Beyond the Great War: 1918-1928 the War Heritage Institute focuses on several main themes: the final offensive, liberation, the post-war era, geopolitical changes, economic revival, mourning and remembrance, economic and cultural changes. The exhibition does not only displays exceptional items from the rich Army Museum collections, but also presents objects from both national and international museums. Through artefacts from the Roaring Twenties and interactive tools the exhibition is filled with surprises and emotion.
