The Airborne Museum is located in the beautifully restored Villa Hartenstein. Hartenstein served as headquarters for British airborne troops in September 1944. Experience the Battle of Arnhem like never before.
The stories told in the museum revolve around Villa Hartenstein. Hartenstein symbolizes the huge transition the area underwent during the Second World War. In the 19th century, the lovely area around Oosterbeek attracted many rich merchants from the west, who built their country homes here. Hartenstein is one of these country homes and represents the idyll of prewar times.
Battle of Arnhem
During the Battle of Arnhem in September 1944, part of Operation Market Garden, Hartenstein became the headquarters for British airborne troops. The Allied forces failed in their valiant attempt to force their way into the Ruhr and swiftly end the Second World War. The bridge at Arnhem turned out to be A Bridge Too Far. Hartenstein now brings to life the personal stories of British, Polish and German soldiers and civilians, through unique items from the museum’s collection.
Experience the battle in all its intensity at the underground Airborne Experience and become part of the 9-day operation.
