I went here on a quiet day without a lot of people. Only us and a group student (who weren't very loud).
I actually expected a lot from this museum, because I know much about mental disorders, so there is not a lot people can learn me anymore. Still I wanted to go to this museum, because I live nearby and was interested in the content.
The museum is nearby the bus and trainstation and lies next to a park. I didn't had to pay much for the entrance. What did annoy me, was that I had to leave my jacket and purse, even when I was cold.
If you are interested in depression and psychosis, then this museum might be interesting for you. I know all about depressions, so I got a little bored in this museum. They don't explain much about anorexia, borderline retarted, ADHD etc. There was a room where you can listen to a few people who experienced something like a depression and you can experience how it's like to be in a isolation chamber. There is also a small room where they explain what a psychiatrist is and what he does. YOu also can read what some people in some times thought about, for example ; gay people.
At the end there is a big room to, wich I like the most. You had to put a stethoscope in your ears and you had to put the end stethoscope on/in the shape where it fitted in. On the holes where you can put the stethoscope in, are notes with what kind of text is behind the hole. When you put it on a hole, you can listen to some one like a psychiatrist, doctor, client and priests from different timelines (1600 AC but also 1950 AC). The pole with the holes in it, are in front of things like a bathtub, bed, pictures and other stuff that has something to do with mental hospitals/disorders and the history of it.
What I din't like about that, was the pain in my ears because of the stethoscope.
