Eye opening, jaw dropping, heart warming
Apr 2021
Attended a virtual Design tour last night, was fanatastic! Just as good as the real physical experience which I visited before the "lockdown". You get to really travel the space and still see and hear these incredible stories of people, society, culture, innovation, and Philips. The Philips history is so broad and rich it is never the same experience!

Fun museum to look around at
Nov 2019
Very great museum to look around. It was fun reading about the history of Philips, the factory and its products. A lot of products brought back nostalgic memories. The museum is hands-on, which makes it extra fun. A play is a great add on that they give.

Informative experience.
Aug 2020
They have a lot exposed ranging from paperwork, maps and letters to x-ray tubes, tv's and shaving machines. Got to learn a lot about a company progression and human development in a short amount of time. Lots of interactive games about informative subjects.

Fantastic visit!
Jul 2020
Didn't go expecting a huge amount, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I learned and how interactive and wide-ranging the exhibits were. The museum is really well done.

The cost for an adult ticket is 9euros and it took me just under 2 hours to go through the museum - I went slowly, however. The real standouts for me were hearing about Jan Zwartendijk and the thousands he saved during WW2 by giving out Curacao visas. There are some excellent stories of survivors and the quite epic journeys they took from Lithuania.

I also really enjoyed the section on PSV Eindhoven and the history of this great football club. It was really interesting to see how this company has shaped so much of this city, and especially so the football club.

The staff were really friendly and there is a good audio tour for the last bit. The virtual reality headsets give an interesting look into the future of urban cities and how Philips envisions us living in the future - the virtual reality headsets are super cool and would be suitable for both young and old.

I can't recommend this museum enough. If in Eindhoven, make sure you take the time to visit!

The Philips Museum tells the story of Philips. From Lighting to Xray to Radio\TV, and Music, Philips has a rich history of innovations and inventions and many examples can be seen here. It's also free if you are a Philips Employee (show your badge)

Interesting view on history
Jan 2020 • Couples
A rather small museum, focused on the innovative history of Philips as well the city of Eindhoven. Very interesting if you're intro history and technology.

A great museum
Dec 2019
A really cool place and interesting for almost anyone, even non-tech geeks. The staff were friendly and there are lockers for your bag and an area for your coat which was a helpful touch.

The museum is decent in length and covers a lot of stuff, from lighting to medical devices, and future technology too. I had no idea Phillips was involved with so many different things.

I wish there was more video or audio content, but it was more than worth the price of admission and easy to recommend.
