Discovery Museum is a hands-on interactive discovery center that will overwhelm your senses, where you can learn about how the world works.

Discovery Museum is the largest museum of science and technology in the south of the Netherlands. The museum’s Treasury displays Limburg’s industrial heritage.

A world to discover

Discovery Museum offers a wide variety of activities: interactive exhibitions on science, stunning and unique films (on the future of the earth, for instance), exhibitions on innovative products, educational workshops (such as computer programming) and creative lab spaces where you can get to work yourself – with some help or on your own.

Limburg’s heritage

The Treasury at the Discovery Museum is where the main exhibits tell their story: steam engines and motors, miners’ tools and pottery, porcelain, glass and crystal from Maastricht.
