A complete day out for all ages, and in fact two museums for the price of one. Here, not only do you learn all about bells but also about the rich natural history of De Peel region. You can take a trip past bells from across the globe, ring a bell or play a carillon. While you are here, you could come face to face with a mammoth, take a metaphorical swim in the primeval sea or wander around the museum garden.
1. Unique bell collection
2. Crowned as ‘Kids Proof’
3. ANWB’s ‘Best Outing in Brabant’

5. Two museums for the price of one
View our unique and exceptional collections with an extensive, multi-lingual audio tour. Our guides will be more than happy to tell you all about our tolling bells and carillons: the largest collection in the world. Discover how they bring the history of millions of years to life and imagine how a primeval sea (complete with winking whale!) once existed on this spot.
The museum is perfect for families looking for a fun day out. During school holidays, we organise additional activities and games for children. The fun Pumpkin Days in autumn are always extremely popular.
Children experience our museum in their own unique way with an activity trail. Under the supervision of a museum attendant, they can take a place behind a carillon and show off their talents. And they can follow about an exciting explorer trail through the museum or become an official Museumkids inspector. Again in 2023, fellow inspectors crowned us a ‘Kids Proof’ museum!
