The Story of Brabant links the past, present and future and makes The Noordbrabants Museum the only place in the Netherlands where visitors can learn about key moments of the history of Brabant on such a scale. There is something to see, hear and do for young and old alike, whether residents of Brabant or not. The Story of Brabant is made up of six times zones and also two pavilions which focus on the life and work of the two master painters with Brabant origins, namely Jheronimus Bosch and Vincent van Gogh.
The story the Battle of Grolle is central to this. A big battle in the 80-year war, of which memories can still be seen. In addition to discovering history, visitors are also given concrete tips for going out and visit the memories themselves.
Alderman Marieke Frank explains the transformation of the VVV: “As a result of increased digitalization, physical tourist information locations are being given a different role. Storytelling, interaction and experience are important trends in this. This is the reason why several tourist offices in the Achterhoek are working on a transformation into an Inspiration Point. This is a place where the experience, inspiration and interaction of the region are central. In the new inspiration point, residents and visitors can find inspiration about Groenlo and the Achterhoek in a visual way.”
