Museonder offers a surprising look at everything that lives and lived underground. The exhibition takes you on a journey deeper and deeper underground until you reach the centre of the earth.
There is much to discover along the way: the entire root system of a 135-year-old tree, stones that share their stories of origin by laying a hand on them, and a water laboratory. You can also find the bones of animals that roamed the earth thousands of years ago in the area now known as De Hoge Veluwe National Park.
A visit to Museonder is included in the park entrance ticket.

A hundred years of the Open Air Museum
At the end of the 19th century the Netherlands experienced a period of rapid change. The industrial revolution brought progress and prosperity, but our crafts and traditions were faced with the threat of being lost forever. Established on 24 April 1912 and open to the public from July 1918, over the last century the Netherlands Open Air Museum has grown to become one of the country’s most visited museums - one that tells a relevant story that is linked to the present, the past and the future.
