The museum in Den Bosch, founded in 1999, provides a wealth of information and objects for Carnival enthusiasts. A team of 44 volunteers have created a truly magical experience that cannot be missed. It is located in the restored medieval gatehouse of the Sisters of Orthenpoort Monastery, overlooking the idyllic down-town river the Binnendieze. Co-organiser Bert van Heeswijk says: “Discover the history of Carnival from its beginnings to the present day. Our museum boasts a wide variety of exhibits from the background of Carnival Oeteldonk in Den Bosch to the colourful history of Carnival in Germany, and the Caribbean.”
