Militairy house and Museum Bronbeek Oct 25, 2008
Bronbeek is the oldest museum in Holland. It now is a museum and an home for old militairy from the former Dutch East Indies. King Willem III bought the house for his mother Anna Paulowna in 1853. But she never lived in the house. The King just lived there for three month while there was an exhibition.

The house was a gift from King Willem III in 1859. It was opened in 1863.

Most of the sculptures remember the victems of the Japanese occupation and captivity in the former Dutch East Indies.

Something special is the "Blue Room". The room was furnished with gifts from the Japanese Emperor to King Willem III.

There are several cannons, you will see how big they are! And many more militairy equipment.

The museum is open on Tuesday until Sunday. The openinghours are: 10.00-17.00 hour. Don't let the sign at the entrance frighten you, you are allowed to walk there!
