It is a nice small museum exhibiting facts related to the Phillips family who started a company producing lamps. It is located where the first factory was and it also exhibits old electrical equipment manufactered throughout the years by Phillips company. The ticket costs €8 which is a little expensive.

Nothing to dislike. The whole museum was above and beyond interesting, entertaining and culturally mind blowing. Would recommend a visit here should you be in the area. Also has a nice place to have snack afterwards.

We visited this on our last day of our stay, this is an interesting museum to see how technology has changed in terms of radio / tv and health care. This is very close to the centre of town and very easy to get to. The staff in the musuem are very helpful and knowledgeable and speak extremely good english.... More

The museum is modern, minimalistic, and "user friendly". There is just enough information (in Dutch and English) to be interesting, but not too much that it gets boring. The exhibits, such as light bulbs, radios, and TVs, are highlights rather than overkill. My children (10 and 12) enjoyed the iPad game. The clerks were exceptionally friendly, patient, and helpful, with... More

As there is very little to do in Eindhoven, I found myself going to the Philips Museum. I wasn't expecting much from this museum and was just hoping to waste a bit of time before meeting up with my partner. I was, however, pleasantly surprised. The museum is modern and very interesting, detailing the history of Philips and providing a... More

This new museum is housed in one of the original Philips factories in its old HQ city of Eindhoven. The museum itself is modern and well maintained. The exhibits felt a bit shallow to me, they didn't have enough breadth or depth. The iPad app in the original factory exhibit is pretty unusable. A pleasant visit but nothing special. Pro... More

I'd lived in Eindhoven for about five years but never got round to visiting because, at the time, you could only look round with a tour guide at 2 pm. Now it's been completely refurbished and you can show yourself round I thought I would pop in. If you read all the text (all in Dutch and English), you can... More

Worth a trip to this museum, a lot of history involved in the city. We thought it would all be about light bulbs...and we were surprised we learnt a lot about how much Phillips have done for the world of medicine. We possibly were a little hungover when visiting but the chairs and beds made it good fun!! Staff were... More
