I guess we got kind of burned out on open air museums, but we thought this one was average. We liked the Einkhousen (sp?) ship one better.

Having heard a lot about it, but never been there, on a sunny day we decided to go there. We saw lots of mostly centuries old farm houses, with a short explanatory board in front, also the hovels the poor people in Drenthe used to live in, and an explanation on local customs at that time on building such very...

This is one of my favourite museums of the world and I have seen quite a lot. It takes a whole day to see everything in this gigantic open air museum. I come here often. Sometimes just for a stroll, to eat fresh bread from the bakery or I take friends who are interested in the dutch history. It is... More

I went today and the houses themselves are closed for the next few months but they've also reduced the price to 5 euros and there's still masses to see! You can peer in quite a or of windows and the outsides of the buildings (of which there are over 90) are fascinating in their own right. Gives a good idea... More

Firstly the weather was perfect for a day out to the open air museum. The Hollandrama was awesome! Even though we didn't understand a single word Dutch during the show the pictures and models spoke a million words. This was our highlight. The park is lovely, definitely worth the entrance fee. Tea rooms are quite pricey (6 drinks and poffertjes... More

Very nice to do. Interesting and learnfull experience. You need a whole day to see everything because closing time is 17u00. Drinks and food are expensive like in every attraction or amusement park. 6 euros for parking space is also expensive. Entree fee is normal.

A day out at the Openluchtmuseum is money well spent (and free if you are a Museum Card holder). There is a lot to see and do, and will appeal to adults and children alike. When we arrived we were given a detailed map with a suggested walking route. There are also trams around the site at no extra cost.... More

The Netherlands Open-Air Museum is a remarkable collection of buildings and artifacts representing the entire scope of Dutch history. Moved here from around the country and lovingly restored, the buildings are brought to life by reenactors demonstrating domestic and artistic crafts much like Greenfield Village or Williamsburg. I will admit that by the end of the day, I had had... More

Situated near Arnhem and well signposted from the A50, this place is well worth visiting if you are in the area. The site covers a very large area and the map guides you around the site and various points of interest. There is also a regular tram service - free - around the site - if you fancy a ride... More

We came to Arnhem based on Rick Steves opinion that this is the best outdoor museum in Europe. We were certainly not disappointed. We stayed in Central Arnhem at the Holiday Inn Express which is a great base to explore the area. Arnhem is located in a beautiful rolling area of Holland with many large forests with mature trees.
