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

WWII Drop zone T for the 82nd Airborne is the location of the National Liberation Museum. I visited with my father who served in the 82nd Airborne post war. I was impressed by the displays as well the number of school children who were learning to appreciate their freedom.

While it covers all of WWII, the focus is on the Battle of Arnhem ("A Bridge Too Far") and the liberation of The Netherlands. Several docents are available to take one through the highlights, but (as with any museum) there is a lot more to be learned by reading the accompanying materials. It's a bit off the beaten path.
