Discover the Canon of Dutch history
Openluchtmuseum, Arnhem Completion: 2015–2017
The Netherlands Open Air Museum reveals the history of the Netherlands, in buildings, gardens, objects, and demonstrations. Since the museum has a lot to offer, Mijksenaar was called in to help visitors discover the stories the museum has to tell as well as finding a specific destination. The layering of the museum is accessible through a sophisticated wayfinding strategy. A map plays a prominent role in the accessibility.
Important choices in the arrangement of the museum grounds and the entrance were achieved in collaboration with landscape architects Veenenbos en Bosch and Mecanoo Architecten.
Mijksenaar worked closely with a dedicated in-house project team to establish a widely supported strategy. This ensures proper maintenance of the wayfinding system for now and in the future. To personalize the experience, the museum has a ‘node’ system network.
