The 9/11 Memorial remembers and honors the 2,983 people who were killed in the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993. The design, created by Michael Arad and Peter Walker, consists of two reflecting pools formed in the footprints of the original Twin Towers and a plaza of trees.

  • Small museum worth visiting: rich collections of authentic objects of the second world war presented in the form of re-enactments with mannequins, sheds with vintage vehicles and aircraft relics, projection of period films (of which a movie surprising on the region in late 1944. Note windows devoted to the Lt Gen Avi Baron Mike Donnet, DFC., one of the Belgian hero of the RAF.

  • Amazing experience run by very knowledgeable people, you'll learn a lot! Nice little cafe as well
  • Amazing well worth a visit
  • Friendly and welcoming reception. Prior to the round we got a clear intro and explanation of the events that occurred in the region and have played at the Zeeuws-Vlaanderen occupation and during the liberation. The design of the museum and the shown collector items are very well displayed and exhibited. The decor of the hallways and entrances at the presentations and diarama's are very true to life. Certainly bother to (reasonably) small museum with 3 impressive showing private collections.

  • Good storyline. Accurate on. Details of uniforms. Maybe even a tank had expected but halftrack with bullet damaged makes it good. Or the found wreckage of aircraft. Care so much for cash. Nice also receive for children
