Good museum! Nice experience, friendly and helpful staff! Respect for the soldiers that fought for our freedom.

A wonderful, detailed and profoundly moving account of the battle that raged in this area. Allow 3 hours to do it justice. An incredible collection of artifacts ranging from weapons and uniforms to more personal items. The bravery of the Dutch residents of the area is also recognised. If you do not find yourself welling-up at some point you're not human.

Whilst on private tour of Operation Market Garden to Arnhem stopped here. Had no idea it was such a huge, interesting and excellent collection as well as the displays and interactive exhibits. Definitely a must for anyone in the area and interested in WW2, the Dutch and their contribution to the allies in WW2 era. I'm from Australia and thoroughly enjoyed this experience!

I was here many years ago, but this place has undergone the most wonderful restauration. The underground live displays are fabulous. Go there!

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.
