G13 Hetzer

Wings of Liberation is lovely museum in the city of Best, near the famous “Park of liberation” museum in Overloon.

They present a nice exposition with a surprising collection of vehicles in several buildings. On arrival you’ll receive a warm welcome from a Sherman, type M4A1, which is on display in front of the museum.

In the main building are multiple presentations and together with a film room they give a good impression of the Dutch live in occupied Holland.

The site houses several buildings which contain numerous vehicles. Besides a Spitfire they have two C47 Dakota airplanes, rare objects in the Netherlands. These planes are the military equivalent of the civil DC3 airliner.

The buildings on the premises presents a German set, an American set and a Russian set. In the Russian set the famous T34-85 is on display next to a Katyusha. In the other corner of the same building a Hetzer stands behind a wire fence. It’s a Swiss post war type, original Hetzers are hard to find.

In the German section you will find a mighty 88mm gun on display. The American equipment reveres to the Marketgarden landing at Arnhem. A medium sized museum displaying a surprising collection of vehicles. Highly recommended for a few hours of fun.
