Fascinating & Surprising & Cosy
The museum is located in the middle of the intriguing peat moor region “De Peel”, in Neerkant, the Netherlands and contains an extensive collection of electronic equipment from the past century.
The collection will help demonstrate to visitors the evolution of domestic technology in our daily lives. It covers radio and television, gramophones, telephones, and other related sound equipment. It also includes video recorders, shavers, microphones, computers, washing machines, Ironing, vacuum cleaners and much more.
Your tour guide will inform you about the provenance of some items in the collection. You will also hear stories about previous owners and how some items were used.
We call this “Technology with Soul”
Many exhibits are displayed in mock ups of the living surroundings of the 1950’s, such as typical home and farm kitchens, a living room, high street shop for household appliances, and even a pub.
On top of that the museum has side collections on photography, medical equipment, a repair shop, a “to measure = to know” section with various test equipment and a technical library with contains dated technical publications.
Younger generation visitors will be fascinated to see how daily living was for people having only this seemingly primitive technology before the digital revolution took hold of our world. Maybe for the first time in their lives they will see Black and White TV’s without remote control, gramophone records and tape recorders! An eye opening experience, considering that this equipment was very much state of the art when it became available, and was the best technology had to offer in its day.
