5x Museums for history & culture
Does your heart beat faster when learning about history? What about the future? From travelling through time to learning about the local entrepreneurship of well-known names like Philips and DAF, you'll discover Eindhoven's history, future and culture at the following museums.
The Philips Stadium is located on the Frederiklaan, where PSV was founded more than a hundred years ago. In the museum, you follow the journey from a sports club for employees of Philips to an internationally renowned football club. Interactively, unique memorabilia, video images, and sound fragments take you back to the success of those days. Expand your visit with a stadium tour, take a seat in the dressing room and enter the sacred grass on which the club is still making history.
Next Nature's ‘Retro Future’ exhibition space at Evoluon allows visitors a glimpse into how people from the past saw the future ahead. From flying cars to living on Mars: how did people envision our lives now? And you don't just see exhibits, you actually experience it through virtual reality.
Go back in time and immediately travel back to the future. Discover how Eindhoven and Philips are inextricably linked and learn how a small factory town has grown into a big city at the Philips Museum. At the location of the first light bulb factory, you will find the company's entire history, from a small Eindhoven-based factory to a world player in electronics. You can dive into historical products and innovations in the permanent exhibition and the complementary changing exhibitions.
Ready to travel back in time while being out in nature? At the Prehistoric Village, you will be taken on a journey through 15,000 years of history. Jump from era to era with augmented reality, listen to the online audio tour via the app, or roll up your sleeves for historical activities such as archery, tree trunk canoeing, and pottery.
