One of the biggest attractions in one of Europe's smallest countries is the Netherlands Open-Air Museum, which opened in 1918 near Arnhem.
Buildings, including factories, farms and houses from different periods cover a 108 acre site, and give visitors an insight into how people lived, worked and played in centuries past. Volunteers dressed in traditional costume explain the exhibits, and a tram takes you around the park.
The park also boasts a collection of jewelry and historical clothing; paper making and brewing beer are among the historical tasks that are reenacted. The museum features several restaurants, shopping and a program of events and exhibitions.Places nearby:
