  • מוזיאון מרשים מאד, בנוי לפי הספר. לא יותר מידי כבד ומצד שני מעניק את המעטפת הנדרשת להבנת האירועים והקרבות. ישנו מיצג בקומת המרתף אשר משחזר את זירת הלחימה. מיצג מדהים. אתה מרגיש שאתה ממש שם בשדה הקרב. 
  • Since the rebuilding is the mueum become much more beautiful. In particular, the real-life situation in the basement. Appearance museum more beautiful with a beautiful entrance. For those interested in military/war 40-45 a must.

  • We didn't realise that many poles were involved and the story map was really good too. The basement 'experience' could have been better. All-round a good morning.
  • Awesome museum. It is interactive and very complete. I'm going from Utrecht only for this museum and for the Arnhem bridge. Must to see
  • This is a place you must visit. Very good history lesson. Thank you.
  • Absolutely incredible. Well presented, through, and honest. I learned a wealth of information in our 2.5 hour visit. The basement! Clearly an unexpected pleasure. I will not spoil the surprise here, discover for yourself. Not for the very young, perhaps 12 years and older. Do not forget the War Cemetery just 15 minutes drive. Thanks for a marvelous afternoon.
  • I really loved this museum though this wasn't my top favorite, I must say all the information and texts about the war was very interesting and saddening to see how much hardship people had to endure during the Second World War, they had a very modest but well maintained inventory of times on display, I even really enjoyed the realism downstairs where we could see real scenes from the war just as how it happened. It was a bit shocking but how war is not shocking when millions of people died? Anyway the Golden Coin was an amazing purchase for 2 euros (even though the gift shop one was a bit extortionate) and I like both the post cards and the badges I bought! Really cool place and I would recommend it for everyone who wants to learn more about history. Oh and probably the best part was when I could of hold a real Lee-Enfield in my hands and I'm down with it, it was amazing! I would recommend everyone to check the Memory Museum in Nijverdal too after this one, totally worth it!
