A blast from the past
Jun 2019 • Couples
An excellent museum with a lovely village feel. It was well laid out, all the buildings were interesting & set for different occupations. Not a lot of information up in english but just enough that we knew what each building was about. The buildings had nice veg gardens & real neighbours. Showed the poor, wealthy & even the sick with the TB room.
Well worth a visit.

Glimpse into Dutch past

Very interesting open air museum spread out over two dozen buildings and grounds, showing how life was lived 75-200 years ago. Pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. Nice cafe and shop.

Very interesting
May 2018 • Friends
We enjoyed our two hours here looking at the little houses and artefacts. The vets house appealed to us with the various instruments for dealing with animals. The Jewish butchers house was also interesting. We could park immediately outside the museum. The cafe was good too. Seeing the children’s games took us back to our own childhood and the desks in the school with ink wells. The shop sold Persil and Sunlight soap in old packaging.

An enjoyable morning out
Jul 2016 • Friends
This is the Groningen take on life of about 100 years ago. Although there are about 20 buildings open to look around, it is noticeable that it is on a much smaller scale than (say) Enkhuizen. None the less, we had an enjoyable visit and noticed that this museum is very much dependent upon volunteers to keep it going. To finish our visit, we had a lunch here and – being staffed by volunteers – there was a restricted, but adequate, menu at very reasonable pricing.

Another charming open air museum showing Dutch heritage
Jul 2016 • Couples
In the Netherlands a number of open air museums can be found, celebrating Dutch heritage. The "Zaanse Schans" has the highest profile, but I am sorry to say that this museum has become, in my opinion, a sort of tourist trap. But the Netherlands offers more. There is the stunning Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen and the smaller, but no less impressive "Land van Heeren en Boeren" in Ootmarssum. "Openluchtmuseum het Hoogeland" in the northern town of Warffum, brings together heritage buildings and matching interiors of northern Groningen from more than a century ago. The museum is located in the small town of Warffum; the museum and the town are so authentic, that only a fence with parked cars beyond shows where the museum ends. I have added photos to illustrate this review. Free parking is available nearby the museum. A simple café is located on the grounds to supply refreshments. Entrance is for a fee. Free entrance with the Dutch annual museum pass.

my grandmother went to school here - so exciting
Jul 2015 • Couples
I travel to the Netherlands often and this was the most exciting trip I had. The open air museum is an excellent way to see the lifestyle of my ancestors. I was totally excited to finally see the schoolhouse where my grandmother attended as a child and to walk through the beautiful houses to see how they lived. I think this museum is an excellent way for people to enjoy stepping back into the past. We walked through the town and found people very friendly and interesting. From young to old everyone was extremely polite and friendly. It was an amazing experience.

Great outdoor trip
Fantastic mild NL spring weather meant we could explore all the exhibits. Beautiful gardens & displays. Set up for locals more than international tourists. Really worth a visit. Take tram around whole site first to get an overview. Left feeling fulfilled but definitely left enough to go back for another visit. Our 10 year old son loved the old bikes, the maze & the punt over the canal.

Great history opportunity
This open air museum provides an excellent opportunity to see all the history of Netherlands. It covers a wide array of everything that says Holland or Netherlands, including old to newer housing, gardens, businesses, shopping opportunities for unique food items and even some live performance areas.
I believe it could be interesting to a wide array of ages and individuals.
Learning a bit about the history of Arnhem and the fact that this museum was already in existence before the bombing of Arnhem that forced the evacuation of their city, allowed room for about 10,000 people to flee to this area as a way to get by with water, functional housing and still be able to cook was fascinating too. The museum is an ongoing update of information since those years as well.
The park does allow dogs on leads but not in the cafés and restaurants or exhibitions. You will want several hours if possible at this museum.

Open Air Museum, Warffum, The Netherlands
Sep 2014 • Family
It is an easy train ride from Groningen and well worth the trip. The town itself is lovely with many well maintained big old beautiful houses. It is surrounded by farm land as far as they eye can see, crossed by the ubiquitous canals. Also it is on major bike routes. The museum is not large. It has about a dozen historical houses from the house painter to the fisher, even a Kosher butcher store from 1834 plus an old elementary school class room and furnished rooms and clothing of a well to do merchant. Entrance is 6 euro per adult, no senior discount. If you bring your Schaatkaart which you can get for free at the tourist information VVV, the second ticket is free.
