The Airborne Museum receives many international visitors every year and works closely with several tour operators.
The Battle of Arnhem, an important event in our collective history, has had a major impact on months of the Second World War that followed. The story of the Airborne Museum is therefore an important part of the Dutch cultural heritage.
At the Airborne Museum, stories of British, Polish, and German soldiers come to life, as do narratives of Dutch civilians. The museum shows a large collection of historical objects, weapons, documents, films, and photographs. Listening, looking and experiencing are central to every visit.
In addition to the versatile historical collection, the Airborne Experience is a unique addition to the museum. In the Experience you enter the battlefield and experience the Battle of Arnhem. The Airborne Experience is a recipient of the Gouden Reiger, the Dutch award for exemplary projects in target audience communication with audio-visual and interactive media.
The museum has an attractive entrance fee for tour operators of €8,50 per person. Moreover, the driver and tour guide will be given free entrance, if they have been registered in advance. This fee is only applicable when reservations have been made in advance. You can make a reservation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
