    Great museum if you're into technology. Lots of old equipment which you'll suddenly remember you had when younger!

    Charming small museum. It is interesting but can be improved. One could expect a bit more of a great brand with so much history (and after paying € 8 ). It can be seen in just over an hour. It basically consists of a collection of old branding appliances and historical photographs. The visitor interested in the history of technology might expect somewhat more technical explanations. Very close to the museum (about two minutes walking) is the great public library of Eindhoven, a visit I would recommend.

    It was a nice experience, I learned some things about the history of Phillips. I really enjoyed the modern part of the museum where they scan your body and show different parameters about the human anatomy.
