  • We visited this museum with a group of former colleagues. It is a private museum situated in a former primary school, run by a group of enthusiastic volunteers. After receiving coffee / tea and cakes, we received an interesting introduction about the origins of the museum. Then we took a seat in an old-fashioned schoolroom seated in the old benches and received (very recognizable to us) an explanation of how things were going. Then we came to the room where the capitulation was sealed in the May days of 1940 and were given an explanation. Lifelike Dutch and German soldiers in the form of "mannequins" in uniform were seated around a table. Then to the old Zeis planetarium where we could see the projected starry sky and finally a return simulator to the moon in a flight simulator. All in all an extremely interesting and informative visit!
  • On our walk we come across this museum located in a former school building. A historic place, because this is where General Winkelman signed the capitulation to the Germans on 15 May 1940. Although outside opening hours, we are invited by an extremely friendly employee to take a look inside. It seems we are entering another time. Very interesting!
