One of my friends told me about the museum and we decided to go to Steyl in order to visit it. Upon arrival we were kindly greated and shown a video about the history of the town and the museum. It was very informative and it gave us more insight into the town's build-up and the origins of the museum. After that we entered the museum. On display, there is a combination of taxidermy and objects from different continents. It is not a very large museum but it has a very extensive collection! They have most animals you can thinks off, some even in duplicates. Especially the butterfly room was stunning. The objects were interesting too, although the signs that accompanied them were often basic. I would have liked some more information with some objects. The museum has a gift shop, but it was mostly closed because of covid-19. At the end of your visit you'll also pass by a taxidermy bear, which is wired with mechanics. If you put a coin in, it'll move. Fun little extra. Tickers cost 10 euros. With a Museumkaart its free. It is a great day trip with kids, they're bound to live it.

Special place, stuffed annimals of high quality. Look for the kolibrie. Immagine how this has been for people 100 years ago

Who would have thought that an old mission on the banks of the river Meuse would hold such an eclectic collection of art and relics. Sent back to the mission by missionaries over the world, the building houses hundreds of taxidermied animals, antiques from china, Japan, Indonesia and Papua amongst others. It’s an incredible collection in a most unlikely place, a great afternoon. There’s also a couple of cafes outside and plenty of outbuildings that are worth a view. Allow 3/4 hours.

Great place to come back and visit. Great to see Bear is back after being away. Last saw him 10 years ago and heard that he had been restored so a return visit was a must. Great to see him rolling his eyes now. Good museum for all the family. The museum is

One feels transported to a different time when one visits this museum. It has been left in its original condition, which probably will not please everyone. Among other things there are a lot of stuffed animals, which will probably be criticized by many visitors. Just think of the museum as a remnant from another time and be glad that you can see something like that.
