Back to school in 1919, clog making, a blacksmith's workshop, agriculture: in Boerenbondsmuseum (Farmers' Union Museum) in Gemert, the enthusiastic volunteers explain everything with great patience. There are special activities every weekend during high season, from cuddling chicks at Easter to demonstrations of old crafts.
And... the pavement cafés on the central square are a great place for a beer, drinking directly from the bottle is allowed. Please note that children may get a little whiny when they discover the old-fashioned sweet shop....
Entry costs just 3 euros for children and 6 euros for adults. A small price to pay for the space & quiet, plus the time you can spend at the location. Have a drink or a bite to eat, for example.
