75th Anniversary visit
Sep. 2019 • Couples
The museum is in Best village,near Eindhoven ,on the way to Son. It’s set in the woods and the only means of public transport is through buurtbus( a local mini bus ). Be careful while using buurtbus. Bus stops only if you hail it, or you phone for the service!
The museum is set in huge wooded compound and shares the premises with a beautiful restaurant, art gallery etc. We were unable to understand whether we reached the right location since sign boards were in Dutch. The museum entrance was also not very prominent. But once we bought the tickets and secured entry , we were thrilled to see rare exhibits from WW2 relating mostly to German Occupation of NL and ‘operation market garden’. I went to NL in September,2019 for 75th anniversary commemoration and had earlier visited Arnhem. So the visit to Best, supplemented my Airborne museum visit in Arnhem. There were some military trucks exhibited with ‘Graffiti’ written on them with chalk.Particularly liked the charts showing day wise events from September 17th to September 24th,1944.
I am map buff, and there were lots of them, showing various stages of WW2 in NL.
Great museum on par with Arnhem museum.

A museum with the clearest story and message regarding the unprecedented battle known by the name Market Garden.
Sep. 2019
If you want to gain insight into how the Allies were able to continue their last successful push after D-day, before they were blocked at the Arnhem bridge, then this is the best museum for that. There are many artifacts of a special nature. For a connoisseur a must and for a visitor with little knowledge about the second world war a great day out to gain insight into this.

This small museum is tucked away in the woods but well worth a visit for anybody interested in the Second World War and the fighting around operation market garden in 1944. It includes lots of military vehicles and artefacts, many of which are accessible and can be viewed from very close up.

WW2 Museum

A fantastic museum in a great setting with cafe and play park attached for young kids. The museum has a huge selection of exhibits that are well laid out and seem to get better and better as you walk through. Only let down is lack of english descriptions on most displays but still worth a visit.

Well Worth A Visit
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We did a 2-day Operation Market Garden tour and a trip to this museum was included in the itinerary. The museum itself is not a very large museum, but what makes it nice is the fact that it is packed with original items used not only during Market Garden, but throughout the war. I liked the various scenes that were staged with mannequins and so forth that depicted how life was during the war. Plenty of maps and placards throughout the museum showing how Operation Market Garden unfolded. One neat feature is that you get to sit in the fuselage of a C-47. Several military vehicles are located outside of the museum too. Again, this was part of a guided tour, so I didn't get to spend as much time in the museum if I were doing it on my own. I do recommend a visit to the Wings of Liberation museum (Museum Bevrijdende Vleugels).

Wings of liberation museum

Lovely piece of history set on the site of one of the 101st Airborne glider landing zones.. Great amount of artefacts and a small mix of vehicles.. At only 7 euro it’s worth the stop in especially if your doing the operation Market Garden route. Wheel chair accessible and total time spent was an hour. On arrival you turn into a car park, just go through the gate and turn right, continue along the road to top and turn left.. You will see a few concrete bollards in front and a few parking spaces on your left. Museum is on other side of bollards in buildings at bottom on right.. Landing zone is in fields behind the building and you can see that in the pictures inside the museum...

Good place showing the story of operation Market Garden in the area, plenty of vehicles and equipment on display. Only seven euros to enter.
Not many information boards written in English but very informative videos in English with great displays.
Set in area of glider landings but easy enough found by satnav.

Beautifully maintained museum which explains Operation Market Garden very well. Paints a vivid picture of the conditions that the troops experienced. Could do with more placards and display boards in English for international travellers.

Visited the museum with other veterans who took place in the Liberation of Eindhoven in 1944. The displays were very good and the staff really helpful. Well worth a visit.

Market Garden - 74 Years Later
Mar. 2018 • Family
Our family enjoyed a very personal and personalized experience at the Bevrijdende Vleugels (Wings of Liberation - WOL) museum. The museum's collection of vehicles is indeed impressive. You will notice a drastic difference between the crowded formal museums of Amsterdam compared to the WOL--in a very good way. Although the location is rural, the museum staff were professional, personable, and top-notch in every way, from first contact to goodbye.

We highly recommend arranging for a battlefield tour. My wife's grandfather was in the 101st Airborne and jumped into Holland 17 Sept 1944. We provided the museum with his information; the resulting personal tour with places he walked and fought exceeded all of our expectations and were worth every cent of the tour. The tour "limousine" was a restored WWII vehicle and experience to remember in itself. Our tour guide, Peter H. did a great job and even undertook an immense amount of additional research and leveraged personal contacts in the area to allow access to small private museums and displays. The entire staffs' priority seemed to be to ensure that we made a memory to last a lifetime during the visit...and they definitely delivered.

Make time in your itinerary for the tour if you are even remotely interested in Operation Market Garden; you will not regret it. Tip: Keep an eye on the weather and dress appropriately if you undertake a tour.
