Walking around this beautiful museum made me realize in what kind of century I used to live. I visited it with my son Sam (6 years) and my daughter Iris (10 years). Both didn?t live in the 20th century and were truly amazed by all the objects they saw and did not recognize. Imagine yourself that my kids never have seen a cassette recorder, walkman, black and white television and washing machines where you had to centrifuge the laundry by hand!

So, it?s honest to say that in this museum young and old alike will be fascinated by the display of all kinds of developments of this important century. A nostalgic journey through time with something for everyone, from grandchildren to grandparents.

Note: some rooms where not finished yet, due to a late completion of the complex as a whole these are not all directly accessible rooms and all visitors receive a free ticket for later this fall once to return. Quite a good service indeed!

Address: Krententuin 24, 1621 DG Hoorn.
Directions: Right at the old historic harbour of Hoorn.

    Funny to imagine that one has never seen a cassette recorder... But the thought makes me suddenly feel quite old!
