The Airborne Museum is an active cultural organisation that enjoys working with private individuals and companies to pass on the story of the Battle of Arnhem.

For example, with new exhibitions, each of which illustrates the Battle of Arnhem from a different perspective and connects the past to the present. Support from friends is very important to this effort.

The Airborne Museum at Hartenstein faces immense difficulties at the moment, due to the corona virus. Do you think it’s important that this significant chapter in history continues to be told? Then support the museum and become a friend of the museum or make a donation.

The Airborne Museum would reopen to the public on March 13, the day the corona measures went into effect.

After a 5-month renovation, we really wanted to show the completely renovated museum to everyone. Before the corona crisis, the financial perspective was very good. We had never had so many bookings in the months of March, April and May. Within one day they were all cancelled.

The museum generates 95% of its income through ticket sale and merchandise. Without this income the future of the museum is uncertain. Read more about our financial situation. Please support us by making a donation.
