This place has a lot to do, but you will enjoy it more if you have company. It is like a playground for children and adults. It has many interactive stuff, but almost everything is in Dutch. In any case, it worths the visit. If you are in groups you can discover on your own how things work, even when... More

Firstly, they are a very few students to help or explain, but not enough for the place has a number of displays. And if you cannot speak english, then it is tough as well. The place has a lot of space, and it can be made very interesting by adding a few more people to help and explain the experiments... More

A Lot of the films are a bit soft in volume, making them hard to understand as there is a lot of back ground noise if the museum is busy. The exhibitions them selfs are a bit laking in the learning department. Its needs more learning curve added to it. There is definitely potential... It could be made a bit... More

You should try our the things exhibited yourself. In this sense not a museum where you not allowed to touch. Here you are challenged to touch and try things. And experience the exhibition.

Some interesting exhibits including hands on action for operating plane wings but little could be understood as virtually nothing found in English. A bit of a 'hotchpotch' of rooms neatly presented but some rooms were 'work in progress' or closed.

You can try a flight simulator, drive a virtual car, put on a little train, simulate a earthquake... A lot of things to try, to understand how it works. Just a shame almost all explanations are only in Dutch.

Maybe it is because it caters to older children. I had the feeling that all the great exhibits were not explained well enough for a small kid to get all the important info out of it. We visited with kids of 12-8-4. The museum is relatively small and has quite a bit of nice exhibits. Our kids loved the earthquake... More
