Be informed that we are currently working hard on a new museum section named 'From stone to micro chip' In addition to a original 1948 reproduction camera there will be much to see on the photo lithography and objects related the advent of the microchip.

This is an amazing museum. We had a tour with my friends ( 8) and it was very interesting. You can also have a workshop to make a drawing on a stone and later you can make a print.. You learn about the lithography history . You can buy prints and books and cards. There are often exhibitions.

Enthousiastic volunteers show you around and they even operate some of the old machinery. There is an opportunity to sign... More

This place brings history to life. We visited with a group of children and they liked it too. The place shows how printing started and has some old machinery.

But were afraid to ask? It's certainly not worth the detour, but if you are in the village, you might want to visit here. They also sell prints at very reasonable prices.

A little gem in a place where you do not expect it. Good exhibition that gives a very good overview. Enthusiastic guides/people that explain the technologies used through the centuries and demonstrate the still working machines.
