Beautiful well-kept museum in honour of all the men & women that gave the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us. Lots of history and exhibits but the most moving part was the personal accounts that you can access on the video/TV points.

Thanks for your review about your visit at our museum. We appreciate this very much. It is nice to hear that you combined your visit with the airborne war cemetery and it was worth the detour. Hope to see you again in the future.

A very well presented museum, a great layout and god way to learn more about an epic Battle of WW2. Helpful staff and plenty to see. Very atmospheric basement. A grey tribute to those who fought and endured the Battle.

Visited in June and loved this moving historical experience. There are terrific videos and exhibits in three languages, all engrossing in what was once Allied headquarters during the battle. The staff is extremely friendly and the grounds are beautiful. The only downside is a small...More

This is a well thought out museum. We were impressed with how the story has been told of a bridge too far at Arnhem. The different floors inside the building bring you deeper and deeper into the reality of what happened. Besides the facts and...More
