I would definitely go there again.
Many itineraries to The Netherlands include a stop in Arnhem as does our upcoming Springtime Tulips trip. We have a choice of the Kroller-Muller Museum or the WWII Airborne Museum in Oosterbeek. We have already been to the Kroller-Muller on a past cruise, but how can one tire of the outdoor Rodin Sculptures or Van Gogh paintings, or the beautiful setting of De Hoge-Veluwe National Park? On the other hand, The Airborne Museum tour sounds equally as compelling due to Operation Market Garden and "A Bridge Too Far". In addition, that tour gives those passengers more time to hang out in Arnhem's town square and stroll through the town. Is there anyone who has skipped the tours entirely and just explored Arnhem on their own?When we were on our 'Tulips & Windmills' cruise last April, we had an included tour of the Palace Het Loo in the morning and then optional tours of the Kroller-Muller Museum or the Airborne Museum in the afternoon. Alternatively, we could opt to spend the afternoon exploring Arnhem on our own, which is what my husband and I decided to do. We returned to our ship for lunch after the Palace tour, and then walked into Arnhem. It is an interesting town to explore, with lots of shops and cafes and some churches as well.
NorthernPhoenix, I assume the museum you are referring to is the Airborne, not the Kroller-Muller Art Museum?No, the Palace Het t'Loo. We visited the Canadian WW2 cemetary very early in the morning, then on to the Mueller museum, and then the Palace. We hired a private tour guide, and he made the arrangements for us. We were staying in Amsterdam after our Baltic cruise, aboard the HAL Rotterdam. I have two uncles buried in this cemetary,
