This museum situated on the former Soesterberg air base, south of Soest, is a real must-see: last year, the ANWB (Dutch Touring Club) named it the best day out in the Province of Utrecht. Discover all there is to know about Dutch military history, both in and around this unique building. There’s even hands-on stuff for the kids: let them try ‘driving’ a tank or an F-16. And the vast space of the surrounding park (in which you can actually walk or bike on the former runway) is quite impressive. Book a ticket online before you go.

> Tuesday to Sunday, Verlengde Paltzerweg 1 (Soest)
