“Great Fun for Children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2012 via mobile

On arrival I thought this could be a big mistake as it was not very well signposted and it is located in a suburban area of Eindhoven. Thankfully first impressions proved to be incorrect as we had a very enjoyable family day out. There were numerous activities for the children to try. My boys particularly enjoyed the wooden rope ferry and putting each other in the stocks! We were provided with a map in English and the staff also were very happy to chat to us. We ate lunch here - delicious cheeses and salamis and the lady in the cafe could not have been more helpful. It would be best to visit on a reasonably dry day I think. Not somewhere to go out of your way to get to, but definitely worth a visit if you have children and are in the area. Also within a short walking distance is a little watermill and an organic farm shop.

“Delightful and unexpected gem.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

We had previously been to the Open Air Museum in Arnhem and enjoyed it, but the website for this one intrigued us as it covered different time periods. The directions were not bad, but watch out for the parking area as it outside a local diving school test track and the exit is a bit tricky. However, once we we found the entrance, the pricing was very reasonable. There was information available in English and we were told that the staff, who were in costume, would speak English as a matter of course. Those staff were very well informed and polite and our kids had a great time cutting wood in the Iron Age village as well as collecting local, well marked plants, to make an infusion that would have been drunk at that time. The young lady in the workhouse, was very eloquent and spoke better English than I do as we quizzed her about the candle making our children were doing. The viking long hut was an eye opener too with costumes for the boys to try on and swords to swing ... under supervision of course. All in all an excellent three hours. Thoroughly recommended.
