With great enthusiasm our volunteers have redesigned the exhibition and performed technical maintenance on both the engines and the monumental building. As a result of these maintenance works, it is now even better possible to see the impressive ship engines in full operation.
Are you coming with your family, relatives or group? Then take a look at our new attractive entrance packages.
Museum 't Kromhout provides you with a good and complete 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 - 15:30 hours and every third Sunday of each month 12:00 - 15.30 hours. We are looking forward to welcoming you! Are you planning to visit us with friends, family or with a group? Please take a look at our attractive entrance rates!
