To share experiences

To tell true stories 
About everyday life in the Netherlands 
To a broad range of visitors, 
Whether native or new to the Netherlands, 
With the help of authentic objects
And to encourage visitors to share their 
Own experiences with us – and with each other

Goal of the Open Air Museum
To promote:

Interest in the history of everyday life in the Netherlands, 
Respect for our cultural heritage,
Understanding of our own cultural identity and that of others.
