  • Went as just some adults and there is a lot to learn here in a different way about the Netherlands. It will take more or less a full day if you want to see all the buildings and read about them...

  • The Open Air Museum is a great way to spend a day in the summer on a weekend. There are so many amazing building from across the Netherlands rebuilt in this ideal setting. It’s like a mini tour of the Netherlands and history at the same time. There are several restaurants and eateries you can stop at, as well as children areas and playgrounds. Really great place for the whole family!
  • The really interesting exhibition led to great discussions about society in our group. Great inclusion of modern topics (freedom) and seasonal things (pride month). The pride month exhibition was very well done. They also have good fries 😊
