Barneveld is well known as the centre of the Dutch poultry sector and it still plays that leading role. No wonder that Dutch Poultry Museum is located in Barneveld.
It is a unique museum where the history of chicken and egg is displayed in a attractive way. In the museum the visitor makes a journey through the time of the Dutch poultry sector. Have a look at an antique incubator still in operation and follow a chick when it comes out of the egg. Children may hold the cute chicks and hug them. In the fowl garden more than 20 varieties of old Dutch breeds show their finest colours.
In the traditional auction room you can participate in a real auction. By pushing the button at the right moment you stop the auction clock and you become the proud owner of a souvenir, a box Barneveldse eggs or a bottle of “advocaat”. Enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or a soft drink in the coffee room. Take a piece of cake or a sandwich and of course, chicken soup. For an original gift or an other item, do not forget to visit the shop before leaving the museum. All articles are related to chicken or egg.
