The museum was started in their memory, and comprise two main buildings just off the main square, and close to the famous church. The story of the American Airborne is told via hundreds of artifacts and photographs, there are two films, and original examples of a Waco Glider and a C47 Transport aircraft. Outside are tanks, half tracks and guns.

The museum is open daily from 1st February to 30th November.
