“Opa, waat woore det väör men?”

In 2019 we celebrate the 75th Liberation anniversary of the Leudal region. The operation to liberate this area was called “Mallard” and took place from the 14. until the 18. of November 1944.

On the occasion of this celebration we organize an temporary museum in Heythuysen from September the 14th until December the 15th 2019. The exhibition will be open on every Saturday and Sunday during that period between 10.00 and 16.30 hours.

By showing a large number of authentic uniforms on mannequins, unique photo /film / audio material, weapons and many more items from both Axis and Allied side we will tell the story of the occupation and liberation of the area between the river Meuse and the “Noordervaart” canal on one side. And from the “Wessem – Nederweert” canal up to Koningslust Baarlo on the other side.

On behalf of the organization, we thank you for your interest and hope you will come and visit us.
