War Museum Veen

The War Museum Veen is a museum in the "Land van Heusden en Altena". What started as an initiative group to erect a monument and to name street names after the resistance fighters from Veen, has grown into a museum dedicated to the Second World War.

The museum is focused on the Second World War, in particular local and regional history. The aim is therefore to give visitors an accurate picture of the events that took place in the "Land van Heusden en Altena" and the Bommelerwaard. In this way, the memory of this conflict is kept alive and the collection is preserved for posterity.

The collection has been made possible in part by private individuals who are in possession of unique materials. The museum regularly receives donations from people who would like their donation to be displayed with love and care for a wide audience. The museum is happy to participate.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
