Een prachtige en magische locatie. Mooi in het groen, met mooie gebouwen van vroeger. Veel te leren, het museum komt tot leven. Trek er de hele dag voor uit er is zoveel te zien en beleven. Goed berei... more »A beautiful and magical location. Beautiful in the green, with beautiful buildings from the past. Much to learn, the museum comes to life. Pull out all day long to see and experience. Good access and ample parking.
This is a very large outdoor museum which covers hundreds of years of Dutch culture dating back to when a Dutch farmhouse was split in half and shared with farm animals. The signage on the campus is sparse and oddly arranged. It is hard to follow the maps and the number assignments. The Dutch are proud of their culture and a large area in the visitors center is dedicated to a very well produced multimedia presentation documenting Dutch history from the Stone Age to the present.
This is a lovely museum. The ability to walk through the Dutch history and interact with it makes it something special. The old factories were still being used by staff in fitting attire and they eagerly told us about the old processes of oil making, wheel crafting and paper production. The grounds are also beautifully maintained and the windmills make it truly Dutch. Absolutely recommend this museum.
