House of Bols

Perhaps you’ve ever had one? Since the 1950’s business class passengers of airline KLM get a miniature delftblue Dutch house filled with Bols ‘jenever’ (Dutch gin: genever) as a gift. But this is not the only thing House of Bols has to offer. In this interactive museum of the world’s oldest brand of spirits you get to know more about the origins of their genever, vodka and gin, you are challenged to smell their 36 liquors and enjoy a delicious cocktail at the end.


Mix them yourself

Don’t forget to bring your smartphone as scanning the codes throughout the museum give you access to movies, applications and websites. And of course you can’t go home before you’ve tried to shake a cocktail yourself as an accomplished bartender. Please note, you must be at least 18 years old to visit House of Bols.

Party People

Interactive museum House of Bols perfectly fits the Party People profile. Forget boring museums where you have to whisper and admire old things. This way you can say you went to a museum when back at home without having to lie whilst still having a good time doing it. And you get have some booze and learn about professionally mixing up your favorite flavors.
