The route needs clearer marking, and having to sit through 8 minute videos in a different language before you can watch them in your language isn't ideal but they have some wonderful artefacts. The airborne experience on the bottom floor is very immersive and great...More

Cool historical hotel location, which was the British headquarter during the battle. You have the traditional well put together museum. Then the underground floor is like a huge diorama with sounds & lights. Very impressive!

This is a must visit if you are interested in Operation Market Garden, this house was both the H.Q of General Model and General Urquhart. It is now an excellent museum on 4 floors, admission is 10 Euros and it is well worth a visit
