Glad to have been your first "internet booker". We felt very welcome and received an interesting explanation and all our questions were answered neatly. The three tastings afterwards and the tasty snacks on a nice terrace completed our visit nicely. By the way, a nice walk along the canal from Eindhoven center. I'm afraid the bottles we took with us won't last long. Best of luck with your fun project. Thank you !

The tour was great, this was just to look at the museum and when you get there if you buy a ticket for the stadium tour the museum part is included. Really good experience though even bought a scarf at the end. Good luck for the season

A really enjoyable experience for football lovers no matter what your team is, reasonably priced it is good value for money take a trip back in time to see and read about the history of this famous football club

Very nice experience, have been in there for almost 2 hours! Our youngest is 2.5 and the oldest 17.5 so for a very wide range of age.
