Great to get a feel for Operation market garden at the place where it actually happened. Resistance stories and the outlines are great and informative. The 'war experience' did not add much for our own experience, but might be great to visit with kids.
Worthwhile museum to visit to see the history of this area from the second world war. The building is deceptively small, but there's plenty to see. It's split over several floors, but there is a lift. The floors are split into sections, eg the resistance network, and there are lots of back stories included amongst the facts. There are a number of short films to help cover more information.
