  • Nice museum, voorl for children but also for the elderly-a trip through memory lane where the all the old jeugdprogrammas you glued to the tube used to be kept.

  • Image & Sound is a pretty disappointing experience where for a hefty entrance fee is requested. And if even a lot of interactive experiences at all or not work correctly, go with a nice hungover feeling home. We would advise against anyone here. And it began still so positive. At the entrance you are welcomed by a couple of young (working students?) that explain how e.e.a. works. That was fine. But then it goes downhill fast ... After payment of no less than €16,-per ticket (for anyone over 12 years) you get a plastic ring that allows you all kinds of interactive things can do. At least that is the intention. Unfortunately, there were during our visit quite a few outdoor use. Also irritating is that many business bad or does not explain what is now the intention is what you should do. So you stand a little tapping on tablets, but what is now expected of you is unclear. Anywhere in Image columns where you movies and stand/& Sound or sound clips. But unfortunately that often barely understand (not even with headphones on). Not only is the volume way too low, also have you suffered from ambient noise. It seems at times as if you're in swimming pool in terms of noise. And the headphones: it's not very pleasant to have to put a warm headphones on which dozens of predecessors have had already that day. You can only hope they are cleaned thoroughly every day. I would say: Watch the videos from the old days at home via YouTube. Furthermore, many things might be fun for 50 +-ers, but definitely not for teens. Who have no idea who André van Duin, Ron Brandsteder or Mies Bouwman. Karaoke in the set of TopPop? What is TopPop? Itself by speaking voices at Animal Crackers? Animal what? (that recording you get besides mailed, but unfortunately the recording nothing). Something really heavy dated and actually can no longer, is a part where you have to guess whose house room you see. There are also still now long deceased humans between, as Gerrie Knetemann. All in all, we felt it was a great disappointment and decided not to be repeated. If you dare to ask, €16,-also really as to the smallest details in order. And that is certainly not the case here. Skip so this failed media amusement park.

  • The building you see from afar. Very characteristic. Upon receipt you will be well instructed by employees. There are plenty of opportunities in the past to "diving". But also to interact. Young people can amuse themselves here very well. In addition, there is a lot of information. Also responding to current events. Mies was the day before died and that was very clear. see the picture. Very beautiful.

  • One of my favorite museums. It's a nice place to spend time especially with children. If you want to know old Dutch broadcasting program this museum is a must visit place.
  • My Dutch-speakind nine-year-old liked the "Experience". The interactive exhibits worked well and were fun and educational.
  • Very cool place! It's a paradise for children. ..., but 1) everything is in Dutch, 2) credit cards are not accepted. Worth to visit for the architecture.
  • Absolutely stunning building. Had never seen such a vividly colourful building before in my life. Such a picturesque sight. Delight to see :-) And the surrounding area feels just like heaven. I even captured the photo and got it framed :-) Water fountain in front of building compliments its grace.
  • For the money you pay it is not worth the visit when you are older than 18. This is a museum for children. Only two nice things worth visiting. 16€ is totally overpriced.
