The Netherlands Water Museum is a genuinely interactive museum about all aspects of water. Learn about sluices, pumping stations and sewers, conduct experiments in the water lab and watch movies in the water cinema. The only way you can learn all about water is by taking part.
The Netherlands Water Museum can be found in and under the monumental park Sonsbeek, near the city center of Arnhem. A museum featuring activities for the whole family. Learn all there is to know about water by seeing, doing and experiencing what makes water special. Water World is the permanent exhibition at the Netherlands Water Museum. Over 50 interactive presentations show how sluices and pumping stations prevent floods, how much of the human body consists of water and how our sewage system works. There’s no time to idle in the underground Water World. Feel like a real water scientist in the Water lab and Water workshop, where you can try your hand at fun experiments. Play the game ‘als Ons Water stijgt’ (if the water starts to rise) and discover what parts of the Netherlands would be submerged first. Watch one of the many movies in our water cinema. Over the summer, the little ones can cool down in the water playground while their parents take a break at the Grand Café Aan de Beek.
