Museum Klok & Peel shows in a unique way how the Groot Peel National Park, a nature reserve bordering the Dutch provinces of Brabant and Limburg, has developed in the past ten thousand years. The museum also houses the world’s largest collection of bells and carillons. An unusual combination, maybe, but not when you realise that Asten is also home to the famous Eijsbouts Bell Foundry which recently supplied the huge carillon for Notre Dame in Paris. So come and enjoy both natural and cultural history in “the most hospitable and accessible museum in the Netherlands”, according to the Dutch motoring organisation ANWB.

Museum Klok & Peel shows in a unique way how the Groot Peel National Park, a nature reserve bordering the Dutch provinces of Brabant and Limburg, has developed in the past ten thousand years. The museum also houses the world’s largest collection of bells and carillons. An unusual combination, maybe, but not when you realise that Asten is also home to the famous Eijsbouts Bell Foundry which recently supplied the huge carillon for Notre Dame in Paris. So come and enjoy both natural and cultural history in “the most hospitable and accessible museum in the Netherlands”, according to the Dutch motoring organisation ANWB.

“A unique combination of culture and nature!”
A visit to Klok & Peel offers a complete day out for all ages. There are plenty of hands-on learning activities for families with young children. Culture lovers will appreciate the extensive collection of bells and carillons. You will also learn a lot about the craft of bell casting and tuning. Nature lovers can delight themselves with the very detailed foxes’ den, a collection of fossils and an impressive mammoth skeleton. The museum displays the rich flora and fauna of these wetlands, in which culture and people take a central role.

Location
The museum is also an ideal stopping-off place for walkers and cyclists, with recharging points for electric bikes and cycle repair kits. Cycle along the ‘Peel-ommetjes’ (detour routes) or follow the ‘Spreukenpad’ (path of proverbs) where a trail of bronze plaques leads you past the loveliest parts of Asten. The museum is also close to Attractiepark Toverland and within half an hour you can get to the Vincentre in Nuenen or the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven.

“Amazing, more people should see and experience this!”
With audio tours in English and German, and being under five kilometres from the A67 motorway, the museum is easily accessible for foreign visitors. That’s great for enthusiastic visitors because, for some people, one visit is just not enough: “We’ve already been here a couple of times and each time it has been just what we were looking for.”
