Discovery Museum is located in the centre of Kerkrade, a former colliery town with a long history and a lot to offer. Not far from the museum you will find scenery that waits to be explored, a lively town centre, the oldest, monastery complex still in existence in the Benelux countries and GaiaZOO, the zoo that received numerous awards.
Kerkrade is part of ‘Parkstad’, one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the Netherlands. An ever growing number of people discover this unique blend of scenery and tranquillity, but also of urban feel and culture. In Parkstad you can ski down on the slope of a slagheap, visit one of the most beautiful and best preserved castles in Europe, have a look at the remains of Holland oldest building, go on a nostalgic trip through the hills aboard a steam train, take a stroll through the Dutch capital of street art or enjoy an evening out at one the best theatres in the country.
