The battle of Arnhem
IN 9 DAys
The permanent exhibition of Airborne Museum ‘Hartenstein’ gives a day-by-day account of what happened during the Battle of Arnhem, from the parachute droppings on the heath to the evacuation across the Rhine.
Photos, texts, objects and audiovisual material help you to discover what the soldiers and citizens experienced in September 1944. After watching an introductory film, you can follow a route through the museum to see and hear the entire story.
The permanent collection contains diverse top pieces, such as Lieutenant-Colonel John Frost’s hunting horn and the binoculars used by General-Major Roy Urquhart. Historical photos and authentic objects are interspersed with interviews with veterans and civilians who went through one of the most famous battles in World War II.
The Experience was decorated with the Gouden Reiger (‘Golden Heron’), the prestigious Dutch award for excellent projects in the field of target group communication using audiovisual and interactive media.
