Terrible experience. Only a very little part of the exposed material had English descriptions, so it was more like guessing all time what we were looking at. The staff was not helpful and part of the material was covered because of renovation going on. This is a museum that only Dutch people can appreciate, scarcity of material, and very minimalistic description that can be good for someone with a brain of a 10-year-old child.

We really enjoyed the museum visit with our toddler who could run around and get genuinely interested in the topics that were presented in the museum such as the birds flight, ice age animals etc. It would take approximately 1,5-2h per group if you are with children. They also Have a large wall with Twente painters work that is nice to see during the visit. We certainly recommend it for a morning or an afternoon both for groups with or without children.

It is an old factory converted in a museum. There are a lot of exhibits from private collections to zoological and household items. It also exhibits some machinery from the fabrics factory, showing the industrial history of the city.

If you go, be open minded and expect a museum with mixed feelings. We did expect a museum with proper information and guide, we found a museum representing a private collection and some war information and stories. The collection of animals and skeletons were ok, but small and randomøy exposed. The museum was not suitable for non duch people, but as a Norwegian we were able to understand most of the explanations (knowledge of english, german and norwegian helps) The museum tries to cover everything, Zological, thechnical, industrial and new science together with a war history. A mixture that is not a full succsess. Was it worth the 17 € for two persons? Wife said NO, I say maybe :)

Though they have some interesting permanent collections as well as temporary exhibitions, the whole lot is thrown together somewhat haphazardly. The area where kids can make their own creations (some for free, some at small cost for materials) is very nice though. Our 4 year old granddaughter received a complete kit for free to create her own zeppelin!
