The dome of honor

We visited the Nationaal Bevrijdingsmuseum 1944-1945 (the National Museum of Liberty 1944-1945). We drove a long way around to get there. That happens when we follow the signs instead of following the planned route.
It is a big, beautiful and clear museum. The first part was about the occupation of the Netherlands. The second part was about the liberation during operation Market Garden and the last part was about building the lives again after the war.
There is also an exhibition in a dome of honor with all the names of fallen allies between D-day and VE-day. We ended in the museum shop. There were a lot of books for sale and also a lot of souvenirs.
We finished this museum right on time. It was quiet when we visited the museum so we could see everything very well. When we were in the shop three buses with older people arrived. We wouldn’t visit the museum in the middle of them.
Then we drove home and it was much faster after we immediately took the right way.
