Never knew this was here; THE place where the Germans surrendered to the Allies. Small, but a good display of uniforms and gear of the era. Enterance comes with a video of the events surrounding that day. Must see for WWII buffs.

The best part was the short film about the surrender, the whole museum was a bit underwhelming. We spent about 20 minutes there

This museum contains some great artifacts and the room where the surrender took place is very well done. The building itself has changed little since 1945.

We wanted to tour but it wasn’t open yet. However, it was very interesting to just be outside the building. There is street parking across the street and it isn’t in a busy area so you should be able to find a spot.

Discovered this almost by accident whilst researching things to do whilst in the city. This is absolutely fascinating, a little reminiscent of the Cabinet War Rooms in London, but much smaller. Most of the exhibition comprises displays of contemporary uniforms and small artifacts from the...More

This isn’t a big museum but it is very interesting. Start with the informative film at the beginning (we didn’t need to wait when we arrived, but if you just missed the start of the film it might take about 20 minutes if you’re waiting...More
