Several pics taken inside The Open Air Museum close to Arnhem (which is known because the World War II movie “A Bridge Too Far”) houses, farm life, windmills, stores, weaving, wood transportation, bridges and interior designs of houses in past centuries one can see,.
Also, places to eat. Very fun for kids and interesting for adults to see how they lived in the past.

GOOD: In the old days of my childhood – this street organ used to go through every street playing its music, while the owner came by with a little cup for a donation.
RANDOM: Below are pollard willows. Little short trees. When they mature, the crown rounds out. In my elementary school years I often climbed one and pretended it was my house. Water and water all around Holland, so it’s the opposite of Xeric, like in California where I live (most years we buy water from another state)
FUN: The flower BrugMan(sia), named after a typical Dutch name. In Dutch there’s a saying “He can talk like Brugman” meaning his verbal capacity is so great he would be able to do a filibuster.
A door of a house on the square in Muiden, a small town in the midst of Holland (Province of Utrecht). The angled white pole is for the flag.
One of the old trains in the Open Air Museum – Modified for Tuesday Texture
Not to forget all the life stock you will see in the Museum. For the life of me,
I cannot remember what these are called, but I thought this was a cool hairdo:)
Not that many fences in Holland – except for the country side. The sky often shows more clouds than here! Sorry, a little blurry drive-by, but such a typical Dutch landscape.
What are your favorite childhood places?
