Small and definitely a labor of love but filled with so many artifacts from the battle. The staff were super friendly in offering assistance and answering questions. A true old school European war museum.

This visit occurred the week of the anniversary of this costly Allied attempt to retake the bridge at Arnhem. The gratitude and reverence shown by the Dutch people to the memory and remains of the valiant men is awe inspiring.
The uniforms, especially the British paratrooper berets and insignias was very emotional to me. My father served and jumped in the paratroopers but not at Arnhem. Stories he told just flooded back to me.

Please note - nearly all of the reviews on this page are for the WRONG museums.
There are 3 main museums- the Airborne Museum at Hartenstein, the Battle of Arnhem museum by the bridge and this one which is deep in the forest way outside the town.

To me this is the most interesting of all of them.

I came across this museum purely by chance when I was looking for my campsite.
If WW2/Arnhem/military history and artefacts etc are your thing - like they are mine- then this place is definitely for you. Although it is a private museum, and some of the displays are a bit amateurish, the place is run by extremely knowledgeable volunteers. There are no cr*p multimedia displays or looped films that have become unviewable, just a HUGE amount of artefacts of Operation Market Garden, the Dutch fascist party, the resistance and life under occupation.

The sheer volume of 'stuff' was incredible - it was a collector's paradise but of course hardly anything, apart from a few period books and home utensils, was for sale.

Had a great visit today and had a personal tour around by one of the volunteers Jan which was not expected and gave a nice personal touch and shared his own experiences. Afterwards I asked if he could possible call me a taxi as was.going to visit the Airborne museum at Oosterbeek - he said no problem and I will drive you there myself! On route we made a couple of stops and showed me some Local landmarks of the battles and glider landings.

The museum has a great collection of stuff

The Battle of Arnhem war museum is located very close by to the John Frost bridge, which was made famous in world war 2 and is the subject in the movie "A Bridge to Far". (The WW2 Operation known as Operation Market Garden.) The bridge crosses the lower Rhine. Both the bridge and the museum are interesting sites to visit. The museum is very small but the volunteer who greets you is very knowledgeable and helpful in answering questions. There were no other visitors while we were there and the volunteer was more than happy to explain the famous British Airborne's attempt at holding the bridge. The town itself has other attractions dedicated to the Pegasus Airborne as well. Quaint Dutch town worthy of a visit.

To find it ask sat nav for Schaarsbergen, the museum is in the former village school just outside town.

It starts well with neatly labelled (In 3 languages) cases of weapons but soon the labels run out as there is so much stuff crammed into a relatively small space over two floors.There are excellent set-piece displays and helpful staff. ( Although one opened the conversation by telling me how British troops relieving Arnhem raped the local girls!) You should find enough real gems to make a visit well worth while.

This is a private venture by a group of enthusiasts and receives no state or council funding so I put my small change in their collecting box. Every little helps.

After visiting the bridge and war cemetery we made our way to the museum which was the allied headquarters. It is well laid out and covers the Allied Operations (Market Garden) with actual equipment and uniforms. It covers all aspects of the operation with video accounts from all sides. A very sad event. What was suppose to reduce the war continued for several months more with significant losses. You need at least two hours to absorb the information and reflect. A must visit place.

I visited this museum on December 5th, 2015. I was the only one there. Esther gave me a private tour, all in English, and we had a wonderful visit. Its a nice museum with some wonderful history of the Battle of Arnhem. I enjoyed a cup of coffee with Paul and Esther afterwards and they were very pleasant This museum was a good visit for only 7 euro I believe.

I agree with the review by Mstone7 - the museum to see is the one just to the north of Arnehm, in the woods. It's a very extensive private collection of artefacts, with sections on occupied Holland, the battle of Arnhem and its liberation. The staff (all volunteers) are very friendly and knowledgeable. The bit about 'children of the liberation' was particularly interesting and moving. Go and enjoy this gem of a museum.

We visited this museum on a lovely warm spring day in April. Outside the museum a tank and an
imposing war plane provided a perfect beginning for an in-depth look at the huge amount of original memorabilia from WW2 on display inside. We were taken through the museum by Dan (one of the many volunteer staff) and he was able to answer in detail many of the questions we asked. He told us about the riffles, machine guns, uniforms, documents etc in interesting detail. We were particularly interested in how they acquired most of their artifacts, and that alone provides many stories. This museum would particularly delight ex-service men and women who served in the area during the war
