The Historische Collectie Korps Veldartillerie (Field Artillery Corps’ Historic Collection), also known as Het Artilleriemuseum (The Artillery Museum), presents the striking history of artillery, with a focus on the Korps Veldartillerie (Field Artillery Corps).
The Nederlands Artillerie Museum is housed on the military base on Woldberg Hill near Oldebroek. Discover the history of artillery through a diverse collection of paintings, weapons and uniforms. The exhibition is housed in four buildings, three of which are national heritage sites, amid an English landscape garden on top of the 60-meter-high ‘Knobbel’, offering a beautiful view of the surrounding area. Soldiers train daily and practice shooting a few times a week on the military site. During shooting practice the noise levels over the heathland rise considerably.
In order to visit the museum you will have to present a valid form of identification to the base guard, who issue passes. Without a pass you will not be allowed onto the military site. A museum employee will collect you at the gate and escort you on your way to and from the museum.
