Margraten Memorial Center
The reason for developing the Margraten Memorial Center is the presence of the American cemetery. This is the primary visiting target. The plan is to realize a museum design that ensure visitors experience a substantive depth of meaning when visiting the cemetery. This will increase the quality of the visitor’s experience and reinforce the cemetery’s significance. Therefore, the proposed Margraten Memorial Center will complement a visit to the cemetery, in terms of the theme, atmosphere/surroundings and experience. A place where the memory of the fallen American soldiers is kept alive, where their story is told in an interesting and appropriate fashion, and where visitors are encouraged to reflect on the sacrifices made by those who fell.
