If Market-Garden is of interest, do not miss this collection. It is one man's labour of love. He, Paul, has a collection of 'bits' of gliders. I was stunned to see a Hamilcar cockpit and other parts along with similar from a Horsa glider.

Paul has a wealth of information on the Glider Pilots. My highlight was a photo of my father's Hamilcar about to land at Wolfheze.

This is an enthusiast's museum, but it does more. My wife who has been all over Arnhem and Oosterbeek with me in the last two years said that this was the first time she actually felt close to the men and their machines. It really brought home what they did.

So many military museums have become quite clinical in recent years; here, you get your hands dirty! Enjoy.

Should you arrive in the centre Wolfheze by the station, there is a poster for the museum outside the De Tijd restaurant. Make a note of the museum's phone number. Should it be shut, give Peter a call; he's happy to turn out. The museum is free but you can donate.

Have wanted to visit here for a while.My thanks to Raymond and Paul for being great guides.
It is not a big place but they pack a lot into the building.
They have plans to reconstruct a Waco glider and you can see their progress so far.
One of the most interesting parts of the visit is finding out where they have sourced some of their collection from!
I recommend visiting if you are interested in Market Garden. Entrance is free but donations welcome!

This is a monument rather than a 'collection'; marking the site of the heavy equipment glider landing on the second day of the battle for Arnhem bridge. Of interest to someone on a battlefield tour for a ten minute visit.

I visited Wolfheze on the 70th Anniversary of the battle of Arnhem. Although the Glider museum is small it was very good, and has meny artefacts. the curator was very helpful. There is no charge to get in, but you can leave a donation. It is not open every day, so its best to check there website before you go.

A small family run Museum. holding meny WW2 glider relics from Operation market garden. I visited on the 70th Anniversary. Not far from Arnhem and the bridge. well worth a visit if you like WW2 history. While i was there thay told me how to find the landing zone's, where my Grandfather landed in the war. It is not open all year round, it is best to go on there website to find opening time's.

A visit to the privately constructed Glider Collection in the nearby village of Wolfheze is a must see for anyone looking to go deeper than the polished image of professionally funded museums. Call first to confirm their hours that day, as its a large (very large) museum, but with limited volunteers to care for the artifacts it is not open all day every day - its best to make an appointment so they know that visitors (who are always welcome) are coming!

I have reviewed this lovely museum before. We came back this year with my sister-in-law and partner who both loved the content. Furthermore, we had the great privilege to talk to a veteran whilst there. Paul Hendricks made us all welcome as usual as did his lovely wife Esther. See my previous review - don't miss out on this one.
