            Museum opening up for cyclists!

            Our museum is opening up to bicycles soon! Taking the bicycle path from the main road, cyclists will be able to get a free sneak preview of the museum. The museum will shortly offer the first bicycle bridge, worldwide, really going through a museum.

            This permanent bicycle bridge is part of the bicycle route connecting the museum to the British and German military cemeteries in the area. This project was generously funded by the Dutch vfonds, the Province of Noord-Brabant, the Leisure Development Fund Brabant and Gemeente Boxmeer (municipaliy of Boxmeer).

            The bridge is scheduled to open for the 75th anniversary of Operation Market Garden. During regular opening hours of the museum cyclists will be able to cycle through 90 meters (about 100 yards) of the main museum hall at a height of three meters. It will offer a great bird’s eye view on the vast WWII collection, which counts over one hundred military vehicles and large caliber guns. As war belongs in a museum!
