Where can I see the museum’s collection?

The Open Air Museum’s collection comprises around 152,000 objects, including carts, household textiles, regional costumes and toys. Some of these objects can be seen in the museum park, but the vast majority is kept in our repository.



The museum also has an extensive documentary collection comprising books, magazines, photographs, films and slides. This collection can be seen in the museum’s library.


Digitised collection

Can coats, bags and food be taken into the Canon of Dutch History presentation?

No, in line with the policy at the vast majority of museums, coats, bags and food are not permitted in the Canon of Dutch History presentation. This is to protect the collection, e.g. due to the need to maintain a certain temperature inside the exhibition, and to prevent any inconvenience for other visitors.

You may, of course, bring in a rucksack or bag if this is necessary due to a medical requirement.
