Welcome at Airborne Museum 'Hartenstein'

Afternoon tea


Experience a British tradition in the Airborne Museum

During the Battle of Arnhem, the monumental building that now houses the Airborne Museum was the British headquarters. So we would like to bring a typical British tradition to the museum: the afternoon tea. This tradition began in 1840, when Duchess Anna van Bedford began to enjoy an afternoon tea, and the initiative quickly became popular. During the First and Second World Wars, tea was served to British soldiers and sailors to enhance a feeling of comradeship and give them a moment of rest.

Scones with jam & clotted cream
You can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea in the Airborne Museum’s Hall of Fame. Completely in British style, with attractively decorated tables, English tableware and all sorts of delicious things to eat. Begin with a glass of Prosecco and then enjoy fresh, homemade sandwiches, scones with jam & clotted cream and various other sweet and savoury titbits. The afternoon teas will be catered by the family-run company of Ma Baker, a specialist in organising afternoon teas at special locations.

For groups from 8 persons
Are you interested to combine your museum visit with a delicious afternoon tea? From 8 persons you can book an exclusive afternoon tea in the Airborne Museum from Monday to Friday at your desired time. You can order the afternoon tea by sending an e-mail to quoting your name, number of persons, date/time and your telephone number. We will then contact you by phone.

The price of the afternoon tea is €29.95 for adults, €24.95 for holders of a museum pass and  €14.95 for children from the age of 6 upwards. The price includes an entrance ticket to the museum. You can pay on the day of the afternoon tea itself.

Afternoon tea with guided tour
You can combine the afternoon tea with a guided museum visit. Your guide takes your group back in time and tells extraordinary stories of soldiers and civilians.  It is also possible to go for a guided  'perimeter walk'. The guide takes you through Park Hartenstein and a part of the Hemelse Berg where you still can see traces of the Battle of Arnhem. For more information, mail or call +31 (0)26 333 77 10.
