  • There are several places and museums in the area which are connected with the battle of Arnhem (and all of them are worth visiting), however Airborne Museum at Hartenstein is definitely the best...

  • I wont post the millions of photos I have as then there would be no need to go. The airborne experience was absolutely fantastic and out the box thinking! You experience the plane with sounds and visuals then leave and walk through a war zone and get to see here and experience what it would have been like. Great gift shop. Has a podcaster to change the language so anyone understands the language.
  • A MUST SEE experience for those who want to experience the Battle of Arnhem. I love the interaction. Bring your own headphones and get the interactive tour. Don’t miss the basement experience.
