Eyewitness Event

The Eyewitness-Event – ‚Äč‚ÄčLiving History will take place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 October on the grounds of the museum. A weekend full of re-enactment at the highest level, historical uniforms, vehicles and 'mock battles' in which participants fight each other in different scenarios. An unique experience in a historically unique location! Naturally, the museum itself is also open with extra programming and fun 'do things' on both days, included with the entrance.

The grounds and museum are open Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Walk around between authentic encampments, trenches, foxholes and artillery pieces. Let the re-enactors update you on everything you see, view the vehicles that are there and immerse yourself in the battles on the battle site. And don't forget to visit the museum with more than 150 authentic ships and planes. Of course we also take care of the inner man and there are more than enough places to have a tasty snack or drink, experience makes you hungry!

The full day program is still in development, but don't worry; it will be an event you will not soon forget.
