Corps Collection Military Administration

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 Corps Collection Military Administration is located in building V-18.
The tradition of the Military Administration begins on July 8, 1795, the founding date of the Batavian Army. The functions of War Commissioner and Quartermaster at that time can be regarded as forerunners of the later personnel of the Military Administration. During that time, only officers belonged to this service and non-commissioned officers up to the rank of adjutant remained assigned to their own department until 1947.

The exposition chronologically follows the history of the organization through documents, photos and objects. Some emphasis is on the uniforms worn by servicemen in the military over the past two hundred years.
Opening hours: by appointment

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