This former hotel is ons of the iconic places of WWI and the story of the liberation of The Netherlands. It is beautifully preserved, and has lots of artifacts, maps and pictures. Also the bookshop is worth a visit.

A must visit of your WW2 trails, beautifully kept museum and grounds outlining the battles and liberations of WW2. Well stocked gift shop, plenty to choose from and not your usual 'tat'

A group of us visited this museum, which covers the WW2 airborne action of the area over several floors, lots of memorabilia, photos, video and interactive displays, at the Hartenstein hotel which was the allied troops headquarters. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and would recommend it.

This museum is worthy the trip we took from Brussels, a very well presented museum overall, but the basement was really well done. A walk through "war zone" replicating the area near the bridge was realistic and quite strong. My only minus is that it...More

We were in the museum for two hours, the information, the films, the exhibits, the final walk through the reconstruction of the battle for the bridge was amazing. So much to see and learn, could have spent much longer there.

There's a bus running frequently to the museum area (as well as the cemetery). The bus runs from the Central bus and rail station in Arnhem
Is there a car park at the site and if there is then how is it accessed? I will be visiting on my way to the ferry so time will be short therefore a bit of preplanning helps. Thanks

There is a small car park which you can access from the main road. There is no charge for parking here. In case this car park is full, you can drive on for about 100 meters, passing the museum on your right hand side until... More

The Utrechtseweg in Oosterbeek is under construction at the moment, and that is why bus line 1 does not drive the normal route. Is it possible for you to walk? The War Cemetery (Van Limburg Stirumweg) is near the Oosterbeek... More
