Wonderful! There is so much to see. If you have the museumkaart the entrance is free of charge. Do not forget to buy (very cheap) the activities ticket for your kids.

Very interactive and interesting park for visiting with children. You can touch and move to different history periods, participate in workshops on making jewelry, cooking bread etc. There are some cafes where you can have lunch and have a drink.
