Dutch Open Air Museum
The Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem captures the history of Dutch everyday lives. In authentic buildings, objects and true stories they take you on a journey through time. From two centuries ago to very recently. The people of the museum seem to have walked away from the past. Proud of their heritage, they inspire you with their stories and are curious about yours.
Authentic buildings from across the Netherlands
The Dutch Open Air Museum covers an area of around 44 hectares and is full of all kinds of authentic, unusual buildings. Each of these has its own fascinating history and an interesting story to tell. In the museum park you will find around 100 historic buildings, farmhouses and mills. Not only can these be viewed from the outside, but you can also step inside for a look around! This brings you closer to history and gives you the chance to experience the past again.
The Canon exhibition
Based around 50 windows to the past, the Canon of Dutch History leads you through the most important events, people and objects that have helped shape the Netherlands we live in today. Spectacular ‘film sets’, flowing one into another, tell stories from the Canon, spread across 10 successive periods of history. In the exhibition you will come face to face with historic figures from each era. You will get to know them and their world through games, animations and films. And, of course, through objects – evidence of their stories that has survived the passage of time. In the film room you can learn about the origins of the Netherlands and its population, climate and geography, while, in the final room, there is a wealth of information about the entire Canon to explore on an 18-metre-wide touchscreen.
There is much to see and do in the Open Air Museum! It is almost impossible to see and experience everything. That is why the guided tour is a godsend. An inspired guide will take you back in time and tell stories that tie in with the highlights of the museum.
