Hartenstein Villa is situated on the edge of Oosterbeek, this exquisite building is the Airborne Museum’s home. It was no coincidence that the museum was established in this villa. During the Battle of Arnhem, Hartenstein Villa was Major-General Urquhart’s British headquarters. The battle lasted nine days, from the 17th till the 25th of September 1944. It was intended to bring a swift end to the Second World War, but that is not what happened...

Listen, watch and experience!
This underground space provides an immersive and imposing experience of the Battle of Arnhem. Stories of British, Polish and German soldiers come to life in Hartenstein Villa. Civilians also play an important role; they lived in mortal fear. The museum has a large collection of authentic weaponry, documents, footage and photographs on display. Also new exhibitions each year. Listen, watch and experience the Airborne Experience!
