The museum is in the old Hartenstein Hotel that was in the middle of Operation Market Garden during WW2. It served as a headquarters for both the Germans and the British.

Informative museum which includes a short movie and an Airborne Experience area which is very well done and provides a good interpretation of conditions within Arnhem at the time of the battle.
