Must see!

Natuurmuseum Brabant

Natuurmuseum Brabant is a family museum about the life of plants and animals, not forgetting the human animal. Whether you are 3 or 83, you get up close and personal with nature!

Wandering through a museum repository is what it looks like in the Ontdek- en Onderzoeksdomein voor natuur [Discover and explore natural domain], abbreviated as OO-ZONE. But even more exciting: you can sometimes touch the objects here! Go on a digital expedition and discover everything about traces of crime, birds & airplanes and what is worn on Nature's catwalk. With your explorer's pass, you take the materials out of the showcase drawers yourself.

In the Potviszaal [whale hall] the centrepiece is an enormous skeleton of, you guessed it, a sperm whale. Impressive!

In Ijstijd [the ice age]! You can hunt a mammoth, meet the Neanderthals Oeg and Noezal, and fashion primitive tools yourself under the watchful eye of a sabretooth tiger and a woolly rhino.

Wolves, Jeroen Bosch and landscapes
In the exhibit The Real Wolf, you get to know the wolf better and can test your wolf knowledge. And perhaps get a wolf tattoo in the ‘tattoo shop’!

The landscape exhibition Brabant in de Ban van Buiten [Brabant under the influence of the outdoors] displays the flora and fauna of this magnificent province. And the Animals of Jeroen Bosch is concerned solely with animals: what did the famous painter from Brabant mean by putting thousands of animals in his paintings?

Finally, you can discover everything about the differences between men and women in Hoezo Seks? [what do you mean, sex?], and there is the cosy Kikkerzaal, with games and the hut of the green hero of Max Velthuijs.

In the museum there is always an exciting, free tour of discovery, a comfortable café (with e.g. a toasted crocodile sandwich and cupcakes to decorate yourself) and a shop full of attractive gifts. The museum is located across from Tilburg Centraal railway station and the bus station, in the same building as VVV Tilburg. Curiosity aroused? Then drop by soon and visit VVV Tilburg for more fun tips and tricks for your visit to Tilburg!


Natuurmuseum Brabant was chosen the best kid-proof museum in North Brabant in 2014.
