Team 101st airborne museum

In 2009, Hans and Mieke van Kessel bought the former officers’ mess of the Belgian army to start a museum. Collectors Johnny Bona and Franck Ottelet brought in their own exclusive collection of WWII items. They helped renovate the building and built amazing, lifelike showcases.
