War and Peace Museum
The collection of the museum may be called comprehensive. The largest proportion of its contents is and was brought along by the visitors. Like one time when somebody entered with an old blanket with the interwoven text “Nederland herrijst" which means as much as: “Holland’s resurgence". Because the available space is limited every month a selection of the present matters and equipment is exposed. It is possible to make a more profound study of the collection, upon appointment.
The most obvious is the large and varied collection of newspapers starting 1933. Also newspapers from after the war can be found. Next to that there is a great variety of books and documents whereas the showcases mainly expose equipment utensils from the period 1933 – 1945. Various times the museum has received publicity on the local radio station and a number of articles have appeared in the newspaper.
For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
