In this unique monument, it is always 1999: preserved according to the British suspended decay, where everything has been left as it was. The decay is, as it were, frozen. This is not a museum where you admire a certain collection; it is more as though you came to visit this high-society family. But that is not the only reason why you feel may feel somewhat embarrassed. “Very impressive. But ghastly for the maids. We can’t imagine,” is one reaction after a tour through this mysterious, silent building.
Come discover how the fascinating family story is captured in countless anecdotes.

An unforgettable experience
Very interesting and amazing that someone can be so very frugal/miserly! It seems like a lot longer ago – from the Middle Ages or something.” A visit to…

An unforgettable experience
Very interesting and amazing that someone can be so very frugal/miserly! It seems like a lot longer ago – from the Middle Ages or something.” A visit to the Mastboom home surprises everyone. Because even though the Mastboom-Brosens family lived in this self-built mansion until the death of Henri Mastboom in 1999, it is the conservative class society from before the First World War that you feel. The staff was strictly separated from the family, which consisted of mayors, directors, entrepreneurs and managers. But for the last descendant of the family, Henri, life is very different. For him, it ended very lonely, as an eccentric, caught between the ideals of his parents and a changing world. But with one final objective: to preserve the life’s work of his parents.

Everything is (so it seems) complete!
While children can dive into the detective game, the parents tour the house. It is also possible to use a smart guide on an iPad. A beautiful contrast with the intact and undisturbed inventory: “It’s so strange that all of the cupboards are full of crockery, linens, books. A great experience that takes you a step back in time.
Perfect in combination with, say, a visit to nearby Oudenbosch and/or a weekend in Breda.
