Nationaal Militair Museum Soesterberg

Post by VinFlyer »

Not sure where to post this but I hope it fits here. Yesterday was the presentation of the plans of the new Military Museum at Soesterberg (NMM - Nationaal Militair Museum). It will be build on the place where the former hangars of the Chinooks and Cougargs are situated. The building will be around 100x250 meter. Both the Legermuseum and the Militaire Luchtvaart Museum will move to the new museum. More on it here

Some visuals of the new museum, remember it's still an artist impressions so the end result might be different from these images.

Kosten 160 miljoen euro (inclusief beheer & onderhoud voor 25 jaar).

Veel geld maar wel goed dat we ondanks de crisis over onze (militaire) geschiedenis waken.

Wow,

This looks impressive. Plans suggest that the intentions are very ambitious but also will give the Dutch Military (Aviation) History an appropriate and fitting accomodation. In other words, I hope this plan will become reality. A DBFMO contract has been awarded to a consortium, which implies that it will be a semi-commercial operation (I assume) and opening is scheduled for the end of 2014. (DBFMO = Design Build Finance Maintain and Operate)

Regards, Humphrey

The exhibits look very clinical to me, plane/tank/vehicle with a sign in front with some text and thats it.

If starting a museum from the ground up, make exhibitions with a specific setting, a plane in a dispersal in a cold war setting, a Hunter/P-51 etc in a Dutch Indies setting or a tank/AFV in a Bosnia/Iraq/A-stan diorama which gives you an idea how the equipment was used.

An example with a vehicle in the USMC museum; http://0.tqn.com/d/dc/1/7/G/h/tank2.jpg.

I don't see any, but the idea of adding a P-3 sounds good!

It is a F-5 ! (but one with leading edge extensions, not used in The Netherlands)

Some interesting information about the new museum:

Op
http://www.nederlandseluchtvaart.nl/for ... ndex2.html
is wat meer informatie verschenen, verteld tijdens de vriendenmiddag afgelopen zaterdag 27 oktober.

Toegang wordt niet meer gratis, parkeren blijft dat wel. Verder gaan een heleboel toestellen uit de huidige Snijdershal opgehangen worden.
Op http://www.nederlandseluchtvaart.nl/for ... ndex2.html staat nog meer!

Volgens http://www.airnieuws.nl/phregister/485/ ... ieuws.html zal de toegangsprijs 9 euro 75 cent gaan bedragen vanaf oktober 2014.
Kennelijk gaat een groot deel van de USAF-collectie ook in de opslag... :(

Ah, ongeveer hetzelfde als in Amerika op Fort Knox is gebeurd, de tankcollectie werd vandaar overgebracht naar een andere locatie voor een nieuw museum. Vervolgens is een groot gedeelte van de collectie ''verdwenen'' in depots...

Zonde van de vliegtuigen. Ik ben bang dat de collectie van het legermuseum ook wel eens langdurig in duistere depots kan verdwijnen....
