There is a museum located very close to the bridge which is definitely worthwhile if you are interested in reading about the history of this famous bridge. Free entry to the museum and the terraced stairs outside provide a nice place to sit and chill.

Helpful and knowledgeable staff. Good presentation regarding the area during WWII. A very interesting movie from the perspective of the residents of Arnhem.

Worth seeing, but be sure to complete your visit by going to the nearby historic museum which summarizes the events of Operation Market Garden related to this bridge too far.

This is the replacement for the bridge the Paras tried to capture during Market Garden, if you know where to look there is still original damage to the buttresses. A great place to visit
