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.

We liked to visit all the different houses and buildings and talking to the dutch guides who were very informative and happy to answer our questions. A wonderful way to taste dutch ways of living past and present.

This beautiful park located in the forests of Arnhem gives a good impression of how people used to live. There are activities for kids of all ages.

This museum takes you on a journey. From the first floor to the bottom, you get to learn the details behind this failed invasion of the British and Polish in Arnhem, and the consequences for the villagers. An excellent exhibit which is a must for any history buff! Highly recommended.

I went to this open door museum last July 2014 with my aunt who lives in Arnhem with my uncle and their family. Although the day we went there was exceptionally hot, I enjoyed myself with the sights I visited. The museum is located in a sideway near the edge of the town amidst a fairly large forest. An entry... More

The park has a lot of buildings out of the past of the Netherlands. It varies from business to farm and from home to factory. They also have several old trams riding a continuous service through the park. Complete with service station for the trams. They also make it interesting for children, with several playgrounds, both modern and contemporary, and... More

A great selection of original Dutch farmhouses. Broken down from their original location and build brick by brick in the open air museum. Also some old nice city trams from Rotterdam. Didn't want to go, my wife made me ;) But I loved it.
