In spite of difficulty with finding the correct bus stop, we were able to get to the Diesel House before they ran the big engine. (It was a special day rather than the usual day for this engine and we lucked into it.) It was very crowded with lots of people trying to get a good look. It is very... More

Was free and we road our bikes to it. We go there on the day that one of the smaller engines was being started. Wish we saw the "big boy" run. Interesting and the staff very friendly and informative. A bonus was the construction being done out side. Had a birds eye view and watch big things move and pick... More

On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the Month, Dong Engery's 'DieselHuset' opens its doors to show off its 1930's colossal diesel engine. The engine is started at 11:00, and standing on the balcony looking at a diesel engine larger than a number of houses slowing coming up to speed is a remarkable experience. The whole family took part, and... More

Well... If you have any interest for large machinery, engines or moving parts what so ever, then this is a must go. Check the webpage for when they start the engines so you get the most out of it. Free admission.

This museum is one of a kind. Besides the amazing big engine it also gives a good overview of the B&W diesel engines, also used in the maritime industrie. If you have ever worked with a B&W you should visit this museum for sure. As Dutchmen we even got a separate explanation in English.

This is a very specialised museum, but if you have an interest in things mechanical this is an absolute must. It holds a very, very big diesel engine that is literally awesome. As well there are displays covering the development of the company that developed it, the development of diesel engines for shipping and a display outlining the wares of... More

Diesel House is home of a huge diesel engine that was the largest in the world until the 1960's. Twice a month the engine is turned on, and it is a spectacular view. You can smell the engine as well as feel the vibrations in the room. Even though I'm not especially interested in engines, it was fascinating watching the... More
