Nederlands Openluchtmuseum

Hoeferlaan 4, Arnhem

The Dutch Open Air Museum is full of stories. The stories are hidden in historic houses, mills and farms that you will find in the museum park. Just like life, customs and traditions.

The Dutch Open Air Museum in Arnhem captures the history of our everyday lives. In authentic buildings, objects and true stories. We take you on a journey through time. From two centuries ago to very recently. You’re short on eyes and ears. The people of the museum seem to have walked away from the past. Proud of their heritage, they inspire you with their stories and are curious about yours.

Canon of the Netherlands

In the interactive Canon presentation at the entrance you can view and experience the ‘major events’ of our history for yourself. You put yourself in the shoes of an enslaved person, experience how hard the work was back then or steer your own ship. In the cinema you will learn more about your own (regional) history in a short time. The entire Canon of the Netherlands can be visited with an audio tour. So worth a visit!
