The three new bells that will be added to the Netherlands Carillon will be the centerpieces of an exhibit at the Netherlands Embassy in Washington, D.C., May 6-8 to celebrate the liberation of the Netherlands from occupation in World War II.
You can sign up for one of the available time slots. We are also open on Saturday!
The three bells are dedicated to three influential Americans whose legacy impacted the world, including the Netherlands, during and after World War II: Secretary George C. Marshall, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and humanitarian Eleanor Roosevelt. The bells were cast in the Netherlands and will be added to the Netherlands Carillon, in Arlington, Va., after the exhibition.
The exhibit will offer an unique opportunity for people to see up close the beautiful ornaments of the bells. The largest of the bells, the "Marshall bell," is as tall as an average American man! Visitors will also learn about the history of the Netherlands Carillon.
We hope to see you soon!
