This is a family museum, where everything revolves around science. In other words, you don’t have to be a nerd to appreciate this place! Between workbenches, test tubes and tool chests in the knowledge-lab, you'll learn that science doesn’t always provide ready-made answers. It's a matter of coming up with ideas and performing experiments. In the youth-lab, young people can experiment for themselves with their senses, light and sound. Visitors will discover that science is fun and also very commonplace. Sometimes it can even be scary, as is the case with the private collection of Jan Bleuland (1756-1838), a professor of medicine. His extensive exhibit includes sets of skeletons, preserved foetuses and wax impressions of body parts. Don't miss the collection of curiosities from the 16th to the 18th centuries either when it was many a rich man’s hobby to collect remarkable, gruesome, mysterious, rare and exotic objects like the penis of a sperm whale!
