We enjoyed our visit to the National Liberation Museum. It was well laid out and gave enough information without being overwhelming. Our sons especially enjoyed the exhibits after hearing the stories from their Oma and Opa about occupation and liberation in the Netherlands. We were disappointed that the cemetery and battlefield tours were not available. I recommend contacting them before... More

Dedicated to events orotund the liberation of the Netherlands in World War II this museum also educates the younger generations in the value and cost of freedom in a powerful way. Tri-language signs guide you through the museum to recall the occupation and eventual liberation of the Netherlands and memorialize those who fought and died in 1944-1945. Movies, dioramas and...

My family live nearby and took us to this museum for which I am truly thankful. It is an impressive exhibition beautifully presented and very interesting. We were also lucky to see an additional exhibition of the songs of the liberation which was also interesting and presented very well. It has given us finer appreciation for the freedom we have...

We were staying nearby, so it made sense to drop by for a visit. And the museum truly exceeded expectations. The methodical way in which it chronologically detailed all the events with a Dutch perspective was both visitor-friendly and informative. The footage they had on Anne Frank was even more comprehensive than what was shown at Anne Frank House. All... More

When our tour bus rolled up I was not impressed with the rather small building but as soon as we got inside and met our guides I began to be impressed. They were enthusiastic and knowledgeable and before long I knew I will have to come back. I could easily spend all day here! The displays are terrific and fascinating.... More

Me, the wife and kids enjoyed our trip to this museum. Very well displayed and laid out with lots of information about the hardships the Dutch suffered during the second world war. The staff were very informative and spoke great English giving us a very good talk prior to us looking around

I enjoyed the serenity. Nothing to dislike. An emotional experience to visit the graves of the Canadians who gave their lives to free my homeland. I now live in Canada

This is a very interesting museum in that it concentrates on one major effort of WWII, namely Operation Market Garden, which ultimately failed. The tour starts with an 8 minute film giving the background and an explanation of the operation's activities. You then move into a number of static exhibits with further information given by volunteer who "tag team" you... More

A moving experience to the memory of the battles that were fought in this area...namely Market Garden. Nearby is the cemetery far the fallen. Lots of memorabilia from this era. The tour guides were very well informed. Afterwards we were treated to Dutch favorites...apple pie and coffee. Very moving 2 hours...well spent.
