I went on 2014 January. Phillips played a major role to make Eindhoven from a small town to great city. In this museum you will get information all about the history of Phillips as well as how the world's mass media was changing from time to time.

It shows the history of Philips in multimedia way. I like the arrangement. Philips is the root of Eindhoven city. So this museum is not only about Philips, If you are in Eindhoven and wanna learn more about the city, you should vist here.

As the title says, this museum is probably one of the top attractions in Eindhoven. It is very close to the train station (10 minutes walk max.), so if you are stuck there and are not sure how to fill the time.. give it a try!

A very uncritical view of the great things achieved by Philips, this exhibition starts out interesting enough but gets quite repetitive as it turns into a cheerleading session. The fact that we paid to see this collection of advertising is the sticking point for me - as a free exhibition it would be fine, but to charge people for such... More

My husband and I recently moved from the UK to Eindhoven and so when my parents visited we wanted to show them around. The Philips museum seemed an obvious choice for a day trip. We weren't disappointed. There was a good balance of history of the firm, the impact the wars had, the company's attitude as an employer, the developments... More

Phillips played a major role in turning Eindhoven from a small town to nowadays great city. The museum provides you information not only about the history of Phillips but also how the wolrd's mass media was changing from time to time. It was a little bit sad that the corporation is not as strong as before and their focus now... More

Not just a history of Philips and Einhdoven but an interesting overview of some of the major technological advances that changed the way we lived through the 20th century. From the humble electric lightbulb, through home entertainment and on to heavyweight medical technology, Philips certainly played a major role. A bit disconcerted to find that something I once owned is... More
