“Arnhem Bridge and Airborne Museum are well worth a visit”

Airborne at the bridge
Ranked #9 of 61 things to do in Arnhem
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 June 2018 via mobile

The smallish size of the bridge at Arnhem belies its strategic importance to Allied and German forces during the epic battle of September 1944.
The “Airborne at the Bridge” museum is a few hundred meters from the bridge and is free to enter. It is open from 10.00 to 17.00 each day.
The Bridge takes about 5 minutes to cross and you can spend an hour or so in the museum.
Further down the Rhine is the other famous bridge at Nijmegen about 30 minutes drive away.
Around Arnhem there are many other famous landing sites for that Allied Airborne forces as well as a war cemetery.

The visit to this museum was made by taking time to chat to the staff. They were open and informative pointing out things that would not otherwise have been obvious, a sort of pointing at the sights guided tour for nothing.
The display itself is interesting and informative, and included some viewpoints from all sides involved. I found the picture of the German commander that died crossing the bridge moving. He was smiling and in the photo wearing the iron cross he was given the night before.

Probably the best spot to view the Bridge Too Far - even though the original river crossing was later destroyed. By Americans! The modern, steel and glass building houses memorabilia and souvenirs.

well presented and interesting. big glass lookout over the bridge while you take in the facts and a short animated film in the basement. we arrived at 4.30 and closed at 5 so 30 minutes was just about enough time but allow an hour so as not to rush.

A great little museum worth stopping in at on the way to "the Bridge Too Far". Free museum with great views of the bridge. The good exhibits give context and the staff are friendly. Takes about 15 minutes to get around.
