'The Other Museum', from classic cars to lace, welcomes you to our unique collection of exhibitions

  • Classic cars: we have an incredible collection of more than 30 cars, most of which date from before the Second World War. A number of the first production cars are on exhibition, inclding a Ford Model-T, and Peugeot from 1903 (one of only five in the world). We also have the oldest Chrysler in Europe, and a real James Bond car. Some of our later cars still take part in rallies!
  • Textiles/lace: Our vast exhibition of lace takes in examples from across Europe, including cushions and other fancy goods that were all made by hand. A new exhibit is an 18th Century-style room dedicated to Maria Louise van Hessen-Kessel, one of the forebears of the current Dutch Royal Family. The room even has some of the Van Hessen-Kessel's clothing!
  • Radio Collection: In our museum café, you'll find a spectacular collection of Phillips radios from the 1930's. We have a number of rare models, including the 'Cathedral', and the 'Spring Herald'.
  • Trains: The museum has an exceptional assembly of 1:22 scale trains, hanging on a platform so you can get a view of all sides of the action. The collection includes Dutch trains, and an outstanding example of a train with something to do with James Bond!
  • Meccano: We also show outstanding examples of Meccano, a construction game from the early 20th Century. Our assemblies (many of which are moving!) includes the Eifel Tower, a Ferris Wheel, and a train.
