Land of water and steam
The Steam Engine Museum in Medemblik has the largest collection of working steam engines in the Netherlands. Together with volunteers, the steam engines are still running. To make the museum future-proof, Studio Louter and OPERA Amsterdam are working together on the redevelopment.
The concept focuses on the unique location of the museum and allows all types of visitors to experience the adventurous land of water and steam. Here, the Industrial Revolution is brought back to life and you will go into battle against the water. In the exciting and contemporary museum, you will experience the past and get to work with the elements of water and fire.
In the first phase of the redevelopment, the entrance of the museum will be redesigned. In this space, you can marvel at the number of steam engine models, while projections show how they were used in the Netherlands. An enchanting theatre of moving steam engine models, sound, projections and light ensure that the visitor gets warmed up for the rest of the museum.
