I stayed in Hengelo, near to the German border, with my mother in the industrial city of Hengelo.
I always wanted to visit the HEIM museum, as I am interested in industrial history. See also the series of posts (in Dutch) called "Series Ontmoetingen".
HEIM, aka Hengelo's Educational and Industrial Museum, is an interesting museum for children and adults.
It not only shows the industrial history of Hengelo's native industries, but it also has many original industrial artifacts and has laboratories where you and/or your children can do all kind of technical projects with the help of technical volunteers, usually retired persons from the same industries.
For more information go to their website www.techniekmuseumheim.nl.
Unfortunately they have no English version of the site, but they do have English comments for most of the items on display.
Should you ever visit the Netherlands or are living there and interested in industrial history, it's a must to go there.
Below I have displayed a collection of photo's from my visit in July 2015, divided into 10 categories.
