Airborne Museum 'Hartenstein'

Now on view in the Airborne Museum: 'From Hearth and Home – Airborne Memories'

During the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944, the German high command ordered the evacuation of all civilians in Arnhem and the surrounding towns. The ‘From Hearth and Home – Airborne Memories’ exhibition at the Airborne Museum tells the sweeping story of these refugees and their experiences during the evacuation, the country’s liberation in May 1945 and the refugees’ final return home. This special exhibition runs until the 27th of May 2016.

Visit this unique museum and learn why freedom should never be taken for granted.

Come and experience the Battle of Arnhem in this modern and very appealing museum. The Airborne Experience allows you to follow in the footsteps of British parachutists as they make their way to Arnhem in September 1944 and to meet the cheering citizens who had been oppressed by the German occupiers for four long years. But the bridge at Arnhem was a `bridge too far´.
