Scattered over Twente you will find museums that are worth a visit. Here are some of them:

Twente Technical Museum "HEIM"
The museum paints a fascinating picture of the Twente Industry: past, present and future. In a dynamic manner the museum portraus 150 years of industrial development. From steam engine to space travel. Let yourself be suprised by technical ingenuity from the past and search for present-day sustainable and clever alternatives. At this museum one can experience, discover, explore and do things.

The Bussemakerhuis
The Bussemakerhuis is the only remaining and opened 18th century linen-manufacture house in the Netherlands. Within the protected rural area "Oud Borne" you are offered an overview of Borne's linen history.

Salt museum
The Salt Museum is located in the centre of Delden, exactly there, where salt had been found in the ground, at the gardens of the Twickel castle. The museum tells all there is to know about the many features of salt. This does not only involve the history of Twickel, Boekelo and Hengelo, but particularly periods that go back further in time and worldwide locations. Salt is a worldly matter!

Open-air museum Ootmarsum

Located directly beside the lovely centre of the old town of Ootmarsum is where you will find a surprising open-air museum. A wonderful park/like area with trees and water, cut across by a brook. In olden days it was where the gardens, belonging to manor house ´het Hoge Huys´ in Ootmarsum, were located.

In the Middle Ages it was a German knight´s estate. In later times it served as main residence of the Imperial Counts ´van Heiden Hompesch tot Ootmarsum´, who were Twente bailiffs.
