Core collection

The core collection of the National Liberation Museum 1944-1945 contains all objects which have a direct link with the liberation history (and therefore the period 1944-1945). This contains objects of both civilian and military origin which have a regional, national or international connection. The main theme of the museum is liberation. The civilian and the common soldier take pride of place in the museum.
In the permanent exhibition the core collection can be seen in the blue section of the exhibition, which covers the years of 1944 and 1945. The remainder of the core collection is located in the museum depot.

Supporting collection

Objects in the exhibition and the depot that date from outside the 1944/1945 period (1918-1944 and 1945-1955) are part of the supporting collection. About 20% of the museum collection is supportive.

Donations

Thanks to private donations the collection of the National Liberation Museum is still growing. Objects, photos and written documents from the 1944-1945 period as well as the years 1918-1944 and 1945-1955 are welcome additions.
In order to process a donation correctly and in order to prevent the loss of valuable information, we ask the benefactors to fill in a donation form. If you are considering making a donation, please contact us by email info@bevrijdingsmuseum.nl.
