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

The exhibition and museum has several parts: there is a pretty impressive collection of model war planes to begin with, then the main exhibit is split into 3: before the war ( which I found very interesting) , the occupation, then the liberation . Then there is an annexe dedicated to fallen soldiers in ww2. I visited as a 34... More

This museum covers the causes of the Second World War, the occupation of the area by the German Army, and the liberation of the Netherlands. It concentrates on the local area, the effects on the local people, and the military action that liberated the people of the area from German occupation. It pays tribute to the allied forces who freed... More

This was a very interesting museum which told the story of the liberation of Holland in the south in 1944 and told the history of Operation Market Garden. Disappointingly, however, the role of the Canadian troops in liberating Holland was not highlighted, and much of the museum focused on Operation Market Garden (which was a disaster). The role of the... More
