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.

We were fortunate to visit this museum on May 4, Liberation Day in The Netherlands. Our Dutch friends brought us here to see the museum they are so proud of. On this day, 100 American Veterans who fought in this area during WWII were being honored on the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of The Netherlands. The Museum covers the... More

The tour was split by time zones. Each zone had a different tour leader. Museum was cramped the way it was layed out. The tour leaders, all volunteers, were often rushed. I might have gotten more out of it, if I could walk through on my own and read the materials. Somewhat of an amature exhibit. Least impressive of my... More

Interesting museum packed with lots of information and artefacts. 10 euros so great value for the two hours we spent there. Finished it off with apple cake and cream in the cafe. Went by train and bus from Arnhem which was easy. Walked to the Canadian CWGC cemetery which was also really interesting given the number of graves from different... More
