Finding Another Brilliant Addition For My “To-Do” List…

Passing by the multitude of concrete garden art sculptures at the Garderen Sand Sculpture festival entrance in 2016, I find myself  looking at a large hut housing a very special exhibition.

The space is used by the “Oude Ambachten & Speelgoed Museum” (Old Crafts & Toy Museum).

I learn from their website (Dutch language only) that it is located in Terschuur, between  Amersvoort and Barneveld, and that they ” have exhibitions of over one hundred and sixty crafts,  several fully equipped workshops, shops and demonstrations of many old professions.

The craft museum is not set behind glass, in fact things are purposefully open for being touched and parents can show children how things used to work.

Because the museum believes these things should be both educational and interesting, they offer free admission to children. In addition there are regular guest  and demonstrations.”

This is exactly the kind of place that would interest me, crafts, history, …perfect!

I can only hope that this little exhibition gives visitors here enough of taste that they follow up with a visit.  Sadly we don’t have time this trip for this particular detour since we already have plans but I will definitely be keeping it on my “to-do” list for when I do in the future. For now I need to keep moving… I have a reservation to keep.

The text in the following sign asks if you are “Curious about our museum?”  and then underneath “Visit us in Terschuur.”
