Oorlogmuseum Overloon | Overloon War Museum
War belongs in the museum. That is the motto of the War Museum Overloon. The War Museum Overloon presents the history of the Second World War. Here you see how it can be that in five years’ time more than fifty million people lost their lives, but also how the oppressed people resourcefully coped with restrictions and shortages. There is attention to the opposition, but also to the persecution. Finally, there is, of course, also attention paid to the liberation, with special attention to the Battle of Overloon.
Turning point Europe
In this exposition, they have brought back the Fallschirmjäger collection, as well as a wide selection of other German and Allied uniforms, weapons and equipment. The museum is pleased that they have been able to add an impressive and unique Enigma G coding machine to its collection.
The exposition will showcase the euphoric advance of the German armies through Europe in the early days of World War II, as well as the eventual road towards defeat.
