Museums and exhibition buildings
This new portion of the open-air museum is in three parts: an entry zone cum pavilion of facilities and exhibition areas, a long wall and a huge brass ‘boulder’. The entrance pavilion is discovered behind a 143 metre long wall designed as a collage of brick types, bonding and jointing techniques illustrating the past and present use of brick in the Netherlands. The pavilion itself boasts a museum shop, coffee bar, knowledge centre and auditorium. Visitors then descend to the two lower-lying exhibition areas. From there they can access a brass-clad blob, the so-called Hollandrama, a revolving panorama theatre presenting a show of historical artefacts and interiors.
