Radio TV Design Museum in Haarlem is open again (Photo: RHT)

The Radio TV Design Museum is open again since March 1, more than 2 years after the fire.

The Radio TV Design Museum, housed in the attic above bike shop ‘t Mannetje in Spaarnwouderstraat, was struck on 22 February 2012 by a grave fire. A big part of the particular collection of the museum was burnt.

The building got seriously damaged and more than three hundred pieces of the unique collection – consisting of video and audio equipment from the year 1900 till present – got irretrievably lost. A lot of the rest of the collection has been refurbished by many volunteers. Enough to open the doors again.

Radio TV Design Museum open on appointment

Since March 1 you can visit the museum. But be warned: only on appointment.

The website is under reconstruction too

On the homepage of the website you will read: “The website is still under reconstruction too, for which our apologies”
