We were on a trip looking at Operation Market Garden as in the film "a bridge too far" This is extensively covered here and a 3D map and commentary help bring the Nijmegen sector to life. There are plenty of translations and a few of the films are English with Dutch subtitles. There is an extensive bookshop some of which... More

We sort of decided to visit this museum on a whim, and were very pleased we did so. There is a large 3-D map installation designed to show the troop movements at Nijmegen in WWII. Unfortunately the technology is analog and a bit primitive. The most impactful experience was looking through the mortality records of all of the Allied aircrews.... More

The name of the museum and the enthusiastic introduction by a member of the museum staff raised high expectations, but the focus on the liberation of the Netherlands was weak; operation Market Garden was the one of the most prominent events in the museum sequence. For most of the time, the museum was a rehash of the rise of fascism,... More

This is wonderful museum if you like history. Everything is in English language as well as Dutch. I saw an opening film as well as listen to battle tutorial with lights and armies.. I knew nothing about WW II in the Netherlands when I went in and I had a basic understanding when I left. Great visit.

This was an interesting museum on our tour and it is run by volunteers with the main intention being to keep alive the friendship of the Dutch people and those from the countries making up the Allies during WW11. The gentleman that greeted us was clearly pleased to to report the high percentage of visitors who fall into the younger... More

Just when I thought I knew a lot about WWII, I learned a lot more at this museum. I was so glad I went. The exhibits have English translations and the staff speak English if you have questions. I really appreciated learning about how the war affected the Dutch. The museum takes you through before, during and after the war.... More

We popped along hee having been in Oosterbeek and Arnhem and were pleased we made the journey. The museum is set in a quiet country setting and very sensitively approached. The museum is laid out to look at the years before the Second World War and builds a picture of how the political and social times led to the war.... More

I was interested in this museum because my father fought in Holland after Marketgarden. The museum is a good overview of the Dutch experience throughout WWII, from the Nazi occupation through to reconstruction after the war. It is well organized and guides the visitor through in good order. Also impressive was the Hall of Honour where all the war dead... More
