I have Jan Zdiarsky on 12 O'clock High! to thank for alerting me to this little gem of a museum. The location of the museum is in Krusnohori (Erzgebirge), Czech Republic. As its name denotes, much of its exhibit is devoted to the one battle on 11 Sept. 1944. However, the museum does cover other topics of interest. I will cut and paste liberally from the museum's webpage to provide the best description.

How to Get to the Museum
