Historical Collection Regiment Technical Troops (HCRTT)

In addition to the National Military Museum in Soesterberg, the Army (KL) has various collections with the units throughout the country.

The historical collections of the Supply & Transport Troops, the Technical Troops and the Military Administration can be viewed at Kamp Soesterberg. Because these collections are housed in separate foundations, their locations are listed separately.

The Historical Collection Regiment Technical Troops (HCRTT) is located in building V-15.
In 1941, the first workshop was set up in England, from which the organization of the Technical Service would later emerge. Although the Dutch army was aware of the scattered technicians within in the ranks, it was not necessary to bring them together in a separate unit. Only after the motorization and mechanization of the combat units did the need for specialized workshops, depots and ammunition companies become apparent. Since March 1941, they together form the Regiment Technical Troops.

Opening hours: Monday, Wednesday and Friday (9:30 AM - 12:15 PM and 1:15 PM - 3:30 PM).

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