Overloon War Museum tells the story of the Second World War. From the rise of Hitler and occupation to the resistance movement and liberation. And, of course, the Battle of Overloon.

War belongs in a museum. That’s the message of the Overloon War Museum. A place to learn all about the Second World War. Starting with the rise of Hitler to the mobilization and the German invasion, the museum takes you through the time of the occupation and the terror of persecution. And, of course, you can follow the rise of the resistance.

The exhibition pays special attention to the Battle of Overloon, where German tanks fought American and British forces.

Biking through the Museum

The museum houses the first bicycle bridge in the world, which passes straight through the building. Since March 2020, the bicycle bridge has formed part of the “Aan de andere kant” (“On the other side”) cycle route, connecting the museum with the British and German military cemeteries nearby. From the bicycle bridge, you can catch a glimpse of the exhibition free-of-charge. The bicycle bridge is accessible during the museum’s opening hours. Cyclists ride 90 meters through the main museum hall, three meters above the floor. It offers a great bird’s-eye view of the vast WWII collection, which includes over 100 military vehicles and cannons.
