  • It was once again some years ago that we have been here. Yet again seen new buildings. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Restaurant in the town farm of Zwolle is fine, may have some more friendly staff. Something too much disorganized

  • This is one of my favourite museums of the world and I have seen quite a lot. It takes a whole day to see everything in this gigantic open air museum (but there's a tram). I come here often. Sometimes just for a stroll, to eat fresh bread from the bakery or I take my international friends who are interested in the dutch history. It is a beautiful museum, worth a visit. As well as for adults as children. In fact, it should be in your list of things to do when in the Netherlands. This museum is very interactive and great for kids. There's so much to do for them. Easy access by car or public transport.
  • Beautiful, interesting, and informative grounds. The people that work there were very pleasant. And they have some great food there too! I highly recommend if you have a chance to go that you do.
