A new combined museum
A new building next to Gemaal de Cruquius brings the collections of our two museums, the Cruquius Museum and the Historical Museum, together in one location. In this way, the history of 2000 years of land, water and air in Haarlemmermeer can be told in its entirety. It is the perfect example of how the Dutch fought against water and how agricultural pioneers set to work on the reclaimed land, later creating 26 residential areas.
The unique story of the national airport below sea level will also be given a prominent place in the new presentation. There we will be able to receive more visitors, expand educational activities and strengthen cultural entrepreneurship. The pumping station is currently being refurbished. Preparations for the new building are in full swing.
To finance the plans, we received contributions from subsidies, funds, sponsors and private individuals. Your contributions are very welcome.
