The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee is one of the four branches of the Netherlands Armed Forces often working within civil society. The Marechaussee operate as the border police, and also protect VIPs and certain properties. Alongside international and military tasks the Marechaussee assists the police in case of, for example, a terrorist threat or as part of a specialized investigation team.

Learn more about the tasks of the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee at four new exhibitions. The museum takes you back in time, through the famous Dossier Oss, from the turbulent times before WWII, when the Gang of Oss, a group of criminals active between 1888 and 1934, to the Marechaussees van Oranje, who had to make the difficult decisions of right and wrong during the war. Learn about the current tasks of the Marechaussee at the I pledge allegiance (to the King) exhibition where six contemporary members speak about moving from civil society to the armed forces. How has it affected them and their environment? The Side by side exhibition focuses on the 40-year anniversary of women joining the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee and the personal experience of female Marechaussee members working in what is often considered to be a man’s world.
Memento Mori is a remembrance room, where we commemorate the sacrifices that the men and women of the Marechaussee have made and continue to make to maintain peace and security in the Netherlands.
