Museum Techniek met ‘n ziel (‘Museum of Technology with Soul’) contains an extensive collection of electronic equipment from the past century and highlights the evolution of electricity and electrical appliances in our daily lives.
During your visit, you will be accompanied by a guide who will explain more about the ‘soul’ of some of the items on display, including stories about their previous owners or the circumstances in which the appliances were used.
Within the museum, many of the exhibits are presented in mock-ups of everyday life in days gone by. On your visit, you will pass through an electrical goods store, a living room, a kitchen and a café from the 1950s, for example.
The museum also houses sub-collections of photography and medical equipment, a repair shop and a technical library containing old reference works.
Younger visitors will enjoy discovering how simple life was before the onset of the digital revolution. They will see black & white TVs without remote controls, gramophone players and tape recorders – a stark contrast to today, despite the fact that all these devices represented state-of-the-art technology when they were launched onto the market.
