Beyond the Great War: 1918-1928

Royal Military Museum (War Heritage Institute)
Show/hide the menu


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 WHI 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.
An impressive catalogue supplies thorough background information.
The War Heritage Institute organizes this exhibition on behalf of the Belgian government and the official 14-18 Committee.
