A great place well worth the 9 euro entry. Make sure you get the language specific audio guide as all explanation signs are in Dutch. Well laid out with an informative guide. Allow about an hour and a half for adults.

Fascinating room settings take you through the decades of the 20thC. So many, many objects and pictures revealing social history, technological development and the history of design.

For most adults this will be a trip down memory lane. You might see things your parents had (and you inherited). Very nice. The star wars temporary exhibit was 'so so'.

Very nice museum, up to date, also nice for kids. Parking is a bit of a problem when it is raining. But that is quickly forgotten inside the museum.
