This military museum was active in the 1960s. It is known for having a Dutch Spitfire in the collection which was originally on the ground beside the museum but was later displayed on the museum roof (source: PzKpfw-e and M. Krauss/AFNDB, KLMS). The museum closed in about 1976 and three of its armoured vehicles, a Challenger tank, Archer tank destroyer and Sexton self-propelled gun, were transferred to the museum at Overloon (source: TWENOT Forums, Pantser.net). The museum was located at a German wartime bunker on Zeebadweg, close to the beach in Delfzijl (source: Oud Delfzijl). This bunker is now home to the Muzeeaquarium Delfzijl (source: M. Krauss).
