National War and Resistance Museum / Liberty Park
Freedom is never a given. That is the message of Liberty Park. Visitors to this museum are invited to think critically about war and oppression, but also about preserving and recapturing freedom when necessary. The museum, established in 1946, was created on the site where the Battle of Overloon raged in 1944. Today the museum consists of two important parts: the National War and Resistance Museum and, since 2006, the Marshall Museum.
The National War and Resistance Museum tells the story of the Second World War, not just its military aspects, but above all how ordinary people experienced the war. The museum also includes the Building of the Camps, which emphasizes the persecution in the concentration camps during the war. The collection of the Marshall Museum contains more than 200 military vehicles and soldiers’ gear in a true to life setting.
