The Netherlands Fortress Museum (Nederlands Vestingmuseum) is located in the city of Naarden, in The Netherlands. The Museum was established in 1955 in the Turfpoort Bastion, one of the six bastions that give the walled city its distinctive star shape. (During World War II, allied bombers returning to Great Britain from bombing missions used it as a marker.) The fortifications themselves, including the bastions, date to the period 1675-1685.
