Our museum gives a good overview of the technical development of the engines built here (mainly Kromhout engines) in the Kromhout Engine Factory, in Amsterdam, from 1895.
There are also some other very old engines, from Deutz and Van Rennes (1895), which you can see here at work.
Some of the steam engines on display are also part of the history of 't-Kromhout.
The company was founded at the current location around 150 years ago, at the height of the Industrial Revolution. As shipbuilding played a major role in this part of Amsterdam, the display consists mainly of marine engines.
Besides the working engines, there is also a forge, and the interactive displays give lots of information about the history and technology of combustion engines.
Every Tuesday, work is done on the engines, so you can watch the restoration process.
Tuesday: 09:30 till 15:30
Every third Sunday of the month: 12:00-16:00 uur
