MEDEMBLIKKER STEAMFAIR: STEAM MODELS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
On Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September, model makers from far and wide will come to the Dutch Steam Engine Museum to demonstrate their steam models, often exact copies of original steam engines built to scale. A party for lovers of all things steam and steam model building!
Lively weekend full of activities
Both in the museum and outside on the museum grounds, a varied range of stationary machines, puffing steam locomotives, travelling steam tractors and rollers, a boiler under construction, hot-air engines, a steam bike and much more can be seen. Radio-controlled (steam) boats sail to and fro in the inland water behind the museum, a feast for the eyes!
Romulus passenger steam train
The model steam train runs with big clouds of steam and screaming steam whistle puffing along the track on the museum grounds. Step aboard for a ride back and forth, fun for young and old!
Exhibition "Netherlands on Steam!
Many moving and unique steam models from the museum collection show in an audiovisual show how the steam engine conquered the Netherlands in the mid-19th century. You'll feast your eyes!
Everything that can turn, turns!
In the museum, the fire in the boiler is stoked and the robust steam engines come to life again. Miniature steam engines are ready to make steam yourself and discover what steam power does. Outside in the machine garden, we will hoist, saw and dredge. In short, there is plenty to see and experience during the Medemblikker Steamfair!
