Long Description:
"Det danske Totalforsvars historie samlet på et sted.

Museet er beliggende i historiske bygninger fra tiden omkring 2. Verdenskrig, med bla. gigantisk tysk flyhangar og kommandobunker:

1940-1945: Tysk vandflyveplads - én af tre operative tyske flyvepladser under krigen
1945-1949: Flygtningelejr for tyske flygtninge i Danmark, én af de mange store flygtningelejre i Aalborg
Intet andet sted i Danmark finder man Totalforsvarets historie og besættelsestiden 1940 - 1945 udstillet under samme tag.

I udstillingerne kan man komme tæt på håndskydevåben, jagerfly, politimotorcykler og meget andet materiel, som har været en del af det danske Totalforsvar i krig og fred.

Museet omfatter flere særudstillinger om bla. 2. Verdenskrig; Tyske flygtninge i Danmark efter krigen; Aalborg som Garnisonsby siden 1779 mm."
