The General Patton Memorial Museum in Ettelbruck commemorates the commander of the 3rd US Army whose troops liberated the town on 25 December 1944. The exhibition illustrates the most important events that occurred during the Second World War in Luxembourg.

In addition to the impressive statue of General Patton, the museum houses a rich documentation of the general's life. 

With a unique collection of thousands of photographs, documents and historical objects, the museum illustrates various events of the Second World War that shaped Luxembourg's history.

A special room is dedicated to the little-known topics of military archaeology and the air war over Luxembourg.

The museum presents a very rich collection of items recovered from the battlefields of Luxembourg. A particular attraction are the aircraft engines, some of which are still in good condition, as well as the on-board weapons and flight instruments distorted by the impact.
