What you’ll experience:
This is museum and war memorial, a place of history and reflection on the close links between the rights of man and the preservation of peace. Visitors take a journey back from 1918 to the present day. There are three memorial gardens: the American Garden, the British Garden and the Canadian Garden.
There is a gallery dedicated to the Nobel Peace Prize and an extension focusing on the Cold War and the search for Peace, comprising neutralised warheads, planes and a fragment of the Berlin Wall. The museum contains a lot of artefacts and information, not only on WWII but on other significant moments in history too.
Allow: 1 hour – half a day – depending on learning objective.
