Around park

On Saturday 22 July and Sunday 23 July, a real World War II encampment will be built in the sheep pasture behind War Museum Medemblik (Randweg in Medemblik) and visitors will be taken back in time. Suitable for young and old, there is something for everyone to do, from taking part in the interactive assignments to cosily looking around and discovering more about World War II. A weekend full of activities and demonstrations focusing on the theme 'Living for Freedom'. Entry is free. 

At the encampment you can experience and discover a lot, with all materials and vehicles coming from World War II. Re-enactors will take visitors back in time with living history and give various demonstrations. For example, on how stormboats work and on Allied weapons with live blank-fire shots. At the W.O.II encampment, you can take part in all kinds of activities, such as paddling in original stormboats, setting a fast time on the assault course, walking across the only working World War II pontoon bridge, and being taken on a tour of the 'W.O.II Education Truck' to hear personal stories of soldiers and civilians.

Visitors can buy a burger/sausage sandwich at the W.O.II Foodtruck, which are prepared on original Allied Army field kitchens.

Entrance is free.
