  • This museum, located in the old factory of Philips gives you a piece of history, science and especially the evolution within the electrical technology and the equipment in our daily lives. We still spent more than an hour and a half.

  • Museum on the history of the Philips brand: early development... You learn a lot of things in a fun and engaging way. Beautiful museography.

  • In the heart of the city, all told without much fanfare, is the Museum of Philips, the company founded by the Philips family which allowed a village of 4000 souls to become one of the most important Dutch cities. The company's history is intertwined with that of technology, so follow the a means to retrace how and on what steps we arrived at our present technological level. Historical reconstruction not ga discounts and an important space is reserved for controversial behaviour from the family during the time of Nazism. Excellent multimedia and interactive part.

  • The Philips Museum is situated in the heart of Eindhoven, at the historic site where Gerard Philips first started out in 1891. Here you can see how a small manufacturer of incandescent lamps developed into a leading global company. You will find the Philips Museum in an easily accessible location in the center of Eindhoven.   Visit the old factory where Gerard Philips developed the first Philips incandescent lamp more than a century ago or play Mission Eureka, an educational interactive iPad tour of Philips’ major inventions from when the company was first founded in 1891 right up to the innovations of the future.
  • In August 2013, my dad and I went to visit this museum on the third day of our trip to the Netherlands. It was a really interesting museum. It's all about Philips, a major Dutch electronics company who are best known for making light bulbs, electric shavers and televisions. It has a great exhibition of Philips products are from the past and some are from the present as well. This is where Philips was founded in 1891 by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik. We are the visitors from Dublin, Ireland
  • Very cool. Very informative. Friendly staff. 9€ per person. Has a souvenir shop. Interactive media demos available.
  • Small, but very nice museum. Gives a great idea about the history of one of the biggest technology companies
  • I learned a lot of Philips and Einhoven (Eindhoven essentially was Philips and lots of housing for the workers, together with the shops and entertainment for them) history visiting the Philips museum, which starts behind a black velvet curtain, in the dark, to give us an impression of how weak the light of the first carbon filament lamp from the end of the 19th century was. Having acquired expertise in working with glass, metal, vacuum in glass, they branched out producing radiology tubes, first to to keep Dutch hospitals and docs supplied with such equipment during WW I German factories were destroyed so no new roentgen tubes available, later on radio tubes, after WW II black and white television tubes. Later on color tv, TL tubes, halogen lamps, folded TL tubes to make energy saving lamps, LED lamps, medical echography, CT scanners, MRI scanner, the world’s first combined PET-CT scanner, the medical equipment nowadays the main trust of their present day research and production, their lighting devision where it all started with put up for sale.
