Het Nederlands Watermuseum in Arnhem
Between 2002 and 2003, the Begijnenmolen was converted into the Water Museum
Aan de slag met water
You’ll have a ‘splashing’ day out

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. Only by doing can you learn everything about water.


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. Conduct experiments in the water lab (in a white lab coat) and watch movies in the water cinema.
