|New WWII museum Liberation Garden
|The new WWII museum Liberation Garden will open in the fall of 2022. The Chinese Pavilion, a striking military building from the 19th century, will be transformed into a real experience museum. The pavilion will also be extended with a new building that architecturally fits with the unique military heritage of the Leopold area.
Liberation Garden will be an impressive experience museum. Visitors will be immersed in the turbulent history of WWII. Through a combination of history, virtual reality, multimedia installations and personal, gripping stories, visitors will literally and figuratively come into contact with history. Historian Dr. Peter Schrijvers: “The experience is compelling, exciting and often moving, but never non-committal.”
