It was an intersting visit, but the place is pretty big and we were not sure where should we go, especially with a 7 year old. Also, in some of the houses there are "live exhibitions" and in some not, but there not a way...More

Spent 5hrs here and only got half way round! Easily the best open air museum we've been to. The stories behind some of the exhibits were fascinating. One of the highlights of our holiday.

The museum is well organized and very wide, it's good for adults and children! The defect is that in all the historic museum there are only dutch explanations!! They should translate the legend and the games!
