“An appalling use of expensive technology”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Not sure what this museum is trying to achieve by implementing RFID (radio frequency identification) technology to guide the visitor through this museum. The device opens some doors and triggers audio / video in different rooms. This audio is in"audible"! in some cases and can only handle one language at a time. An improvement would be if the device could handle earphones for every visitor?

The museum itself retraces 500 years in Maastricht and has some interesting pieces and videos but spoilt by the use of technology.

“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

A small museum with a limited display. Tries to compensate by using projections and screens. Very friendly staff.

“Nice cafe too.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

In addition to being a museum, a good alternative to the main cafes on the square, with wonderful deco integrating old and new. Reading glasses are offered with the bill!

The interactive parts were really clever and fun, and its a fabulous building. Friendly staff, just very small for €8.
