Overall rating:

Description: It wasn't easy to find the museum (situated in a residential area), but once we got there we were impressed. It all started as a personal collection of military equipment just after World War II, but over the years it has developed into a real museum called "De Veteraan".

Although De Veteraan is a private museum it has a diverse collection. For example you will find different vehicles, motorbikes, guns, uniforms, communication equipment and personal belongings. They even have an East-German Trabant used by the border-police.

The admittance is free and you get a guided tour by one of the owners - Don't forget the guide on your way out!
