Why is there not a general smoking ban?

As part of the Club van Elf (Dutch association of visitor attractions) the Open Air Museum aims to be a place where everyone can escape the stresses of everyday life – a natural environment in which the whole family feels at home. Some of the 21 million people who visit the Club van Elf attractions every year like to enjoy a cigarette on their day out. As long as other visitors are not inconvenienced, we do not want to stop them from smoking, although we do ask them to show consideration for other visitors. That is something we ask of all our visitors, however.


What is the Open Air Museum’s smoking policy?

“The companies affiliated to the Club van Elf (Dutch association of visitor attractions) are introducing a stricter smoking policy with effect from 1 April. From that point on, any permanent, uncovered queuing areas will also be designated as smoke-free zones.


A visitor attraction is a place for everyone to enjoy and visitors who smoke are and will remain welcome. By introducing their new policy, the companies affiliated to the Club van Elf aim to create an even safer and healthier environment, especially for children.”


Where can I park my car?

The Open Air Museum has its own car park where you can leave your vehicle. You can purchase an exit ticket from the ticket office. If the car park is full, please follow the instructions of our parking attendants. 
If you park elsewhere, e.g. on the verge, you may receive a fine.
