Nederlands Openluchtmuseum

Museum in Arnhem

The village-sized open-air museum, 7km north of the train station, showcases a nationwide collection of buildings and artefacts, with everything from farmhouses and stagecoaches to working windmills. Volunteers in period costumes demonstrate traditional skills like spinning and weaving flax, milling flour, forging iron with the blacksmith, farmhouse cooking and even brewing (yes, the museum has its own brewery). Buy cheaper tickets (€17.50/14.50) in advance online.
