“A museum you should visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

You don't necessary have to be interested in technology to visit this museum - it tells you the story of a family, a business, a brand and an international phenomenon. Don't hesitate to interact with the exhibits, you may find a lot of interesting things! Moreover, the staff is very kind and very well prepared, so talk to them! It could have been an even more interactive museum, but I think it is totally worth it.

“Great Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is a nice museum located in Eindhoven city center. The location was the original location of the first Philips factory. In the museum you can see everything about Philips and its products, from its beginning until today.

“Good musuem, but I don't think nice for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Very good setup of history of Philips. Nice detail that the museum is situated in the first factory of Philips. For the more older people a lot of reminders from their youth. Information is comprehensive. But that's it. Nice for a short visit, but it isn't suprizing or entertaining, certainly not for young kids. All information in both Dutch and English though!
