This is one of the most interesting museum I have ever visited. (I am 69.) Toys, kitchen equipment, radios, gramophones, tools, computers, televions. A fascinating experience. I'll go again!

This museum describes the life in the Netherlands in the 20th century. One can find many things from that era in a quick way. Going around in the museum is fun and is not time consuming. Less than 2 hours is enough.
