Overview

Het Museum van de Twintigste Eeuw in Hoorn vertelt aan de hand van honderden voorwerpen en tientallen interieurs het leven in de vorige eeuw. Hoe woonden onze (groot)ouders? Met welk speelgoed speelden kinderen? Wat voor winkels waren er? Hoe werd gekookt? Wat deed men in de vrije tijd? Wat was er op radio of televisie te beleven? Op dit soort vragen krijg je in dit nostalgische museum antwoorden. Er is immers heel veel veranderd in de afgelopen honderd jaar, thuis, op het werk, op school, in winkels. Neem een duik in je eigen verleden en dat van je (groot)ouders en verbaas je over de vele ontwikkelingen. Tentoonstellingen Het Museum toont in een groot aantal vaste opstellingen de vele ontwikkelingen in de twintigste eeuw, maar heeft in drie zalen ook steeds wisselende exposities. Zo is er steeds iets nieuws te ontdekken. Op deze site treft u het meest actuele aanbod van activiteiten en tentoonstellingen aan. U kunt zich ook abonneren op de digitale Nieuwsbrief en zo op de hoogte blijven. De exposities gaan over zeer uiteenlopende onderwerpen en spreken vaak ook een breed publiek aan. Oude gevangenis Het Museum van de Twintigste Eeuw is gevestigd in een oude gevangenis op het prachtige Oostereiland bij de mooie haven van Hoorn. Daar beschikt het museum over een ruime MuseumShop, een ruimte voor de Educatieve Dienst waar o.A. Schoolklassen ontvangen kunnen worden, een voor publiek gesloten Depot en een Open Depot waar het publiek zelf kan zien wat er zoal wordt verzameld en beheerd.

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.

However, The Netherlands also offer an enourmous range of small-to-middle sized cities with a historical city centre. Each of these places are good...More

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.
