The museum is in a very large park, so you don't get a 'museum' feeling. In some of the houses there are people to give some explanations. This was very interesting as they point to little details one would otherwise overlook. Explanations are written in English and Dutch - sometimes in German. Highly recommended, but mind that this is a 'Dutch' heritage museum. Some elements will be of lesser interest to foreigners.
