Within the framework of the working visit to the Kingdom of the Netherlands, General Major Koba Kobaladze, Director of the State Service of Veterans Affairs, together with the representatives of the Service and members of Georgian delegation, visited the National Military Museum of the Netherlands in Soestenberg.

 

An introductory meeting was held between the parties. Following the meeting, the staff of the museum showed the Georgian visitors the permanent and temporary exposition. They talked about the history of the creation and establishment of the museum and the importance of its existence. The National Military Museum was founded in 2014 in Soestenberg and depicts the history of the Dutch Armed Forces. Special attention is paid to the Royal Netherlands Army and the Royal Netherlands Air Forces. The museum is located at the former Air Base in Soestenberg and maintains the largest military collection in the Netherlands with more than 300,000 artefacts.

 

“The state expresses its political will to establish a military museum in Georgia as well. The process of its establishment has already begun. Your vision is valuable for us, and it is important to share your experience in order to complete the process successfully,” Koba Kobaladze stated.

 

The management of the museum promised the members of Georgian delegation to assist in the creation of a military museum in Georgia and noted that they plan to hold an international photo exhibition on the military theme next year, in which Georgia will be invited as one of the participants.
