Information Centre: The Poles of Driel

The information center: The Poles of Driel - 'Bound by friendship and gratitude' is an initiative of the Foundation Driel-Poland. A foundation dedicated since 1946 to the memory of the 1st Polish Independent Parachute Brigade Group during the Battle of Arnhem.

After the rehabilitation of the Polish fighters, the interest in the story of Poles van Driel has grown. About 2 years ago this resulted in the plan for the establishment of an information center. Also from Poland, there was an increasing need to know the national history. In Driel itself there was a need to have a place dedicated to a part of the environmental history. The information center also plays a part in the growing battlefield tourism in the region.

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