The masterpieces of our collection have been given a special place in the museum. In Schatkamer you will not find rare paintings or expensive jewellery, but key objects that modernised of our way of living. At first glance you will see steam engines, vacuum cleaners and old-fashioned crockery, but these items tell an exciting story of revolutionary changes that took place in factories, in mines and in households all over the country.
In the depot of Discovery Museum, which is open to the public, you can see top-notch objects which transport you to different times and places. Here, you can admire the beauty of Maastricht pottery, the heavy equipment with which coal was extracted from deep down in the Limburg mines and the steam engines which symbolise the Industrial Revolution.
