This museum village is very interesting and aims at showing children (and their parents) what life was like in former times. There is lots for the children to try out and the museum comes up with many interesting ideas over the year to have returning customers. While the children learn, the adults also learn and can reflect how [simple, easy,... More

We visited the village on the last day of the autumn vacation. The village is tiny but well organized and offer lots of activities for the children up to the age of 9. Our oldest son of 11 found it more interesting wondering around. We recommend it for a Sunday morning

My husband and I went, on a very hot and sunny afternoon. Although it's probably more of a children's park, the information was well laid out in Dutch and English. We learend a lot. FOLLOW THE MAP, LOL, we got lost but found our way back on track thanks to the map. It's only a 20 minute walk from the... More

The place is simply fun to be in, with excellent reconstructions and examples from recent history till the time of hunters and gatherers. A balanced combination of history, engineering, and nature. Almost everything is in both Dutch and English - extremely useful for tourists.

Very well preserved, with lots of charm. shows how people lived in Holland around 1200-1400. also gives the kids the ability to try some old style crafts and tools. my wife and i and all our kids (6-12) had lots of fun.

Get a glimpse of life in Eindhoven in Medieval times at the Eindhoven Museum. Like many interpretive attractions, the interactive activities and the staff make or break these types of excursions. On the day we were there, the staff was quite good. It's not a place where everyone is always on script, which can be refreshing. The kids can participate... More

Museum is open air and is targeted for families. Local children love it. Expositions change so don't expect you will see the same things. There is lot of master classes around. Topics depend on exposition. Usually every day there is some special activity for children. Don't miss this opportunity. Last time it was some performance around vikings... and then option... More

This is a rebuild of old houses like 7000 years ago. You walk through the village and it will keep you busy for an hour. It has it's own restaurant with drinks and hot/cold food. There is a scheduling and every 1 hour there is an activity like throwing arrows or around the village tour with guide. It has its... More

It is a good place to visit with family ( with kids in any range), friends, or by yourself. There is a mini-farm, where you can see cows, pigs, chickens, cheese production, farming of some plants. Here is a shop offering organic vegetables, fruits, meat, eggs and milk products. Personally, I enjoy a lot of feeding hens. It is never... More

We spent a good few hours in Eindhoven Museum. (it was the 2nd attempt as we thought we could walk from Eindhoven centre which you can't) Eindhoven museum is out of town at the very bottom of the large park. There is loads of practical things to do. Traditional games, traditional buildings and authentic characters. Making clay amulets was fun,... More
