The house is from 1850 and put in the museum 1938. 

The link shows all the buildings to see. Only Dutch

Beautiful colors... so the Dutch really do have amazing tulips, huh?
Picturit: Yes we have amazing tulips and other flowers. A nice place to visit is the Keukenhof http://www.keukenhof.nl/en/

Hmmm!

Did someone steal the model windmill that used to sit midst the two-lips, Astrid?
Picturit: There are 4 around the corner, so no need to have one in the garden too smile
Astrid.
So wonderful! If I saw this (not on your blog) - I would think it was very Dutch!!!
Picturit: It is unique, isn't it, maybe one time you might see it in real life...

I could happily live in this house and water my tulips after ontbijt wearing my clogs Astrid
Picturit: Me too Chris, more than this I don't need....Shall I make the ontbijt?
Astrid.
LOL at Chris. And for anyone, like Ray, wondering who stole the windmill, there are at least 4 within walking distance. Can you imagine living in that open-air museum?? I could do that...for a week, maybe. smile
Picturit: It will be very busy, always all the people around. I might like to live in the house though...... yep for a week I can...
It was a wonderful place to visit.

Dit mocht een heel interessant openluchtmuseum zijn. Met mijn leerlingen heb ik ook een openluchtmuseum nabij Arnhem bezocht. Eeen fijne foto- en de tulpen horen erbij.
Picturit: Ik denk dat dit hetzelfde openluchtmuseum is, dit is vlak bij Arnhem.
Dank je wel Philine.

This reminds me of one of the simpler examples of our cottage orné architecture, but I think it may just be the shape and the thatch
Picturit: I can see some resembles.
Astrid.
Delightful Lady P. The museum looks like a grand version of Avoncroft!
Picturit: Yes indeed. It was great to be there back after almost 50 years... it grew a lot bigger grin....
Astrid.

Picturit: Thank you Ayush. It was a great place to visit.

It is a lovely design of dwelling Astrid, thatched too. Thatch must have been everywhere at one time. I note the little Astrid flower growing in the garden.
Picturit: Thatch was very cheap, now it is very expensive, the fire-insurance is sky-high.....
There was only that one Astrid-flower.
Astrid.
This is a beautiful cottage with a happy garden. I just visited the link. This museum must be huge to have all those buildings - as large as a whole village.
Picturit: We were there already at 11 in the morning and left almost at 5 PM and we did not see everything yet, we might go back.
Astrid.
Absolutely beautiful! A lovely shot Astrid smile
Picturit: Thank you Martin, is a great place to visit.
Astrid.
This is utterly charming, Astrid. Were you allowed to go inside?
Picturit: Thank you Beverly, yes, Most of the houses are furnished and have people in, in the national dress for that area where the house comes from.
They will tell you about life in that time. Very interesting. There was a blacksmith working, Old tram-wagons would ride around the park and you could hop on and off and that saves a lot of walking. We walked though.
A great place for children too, all kind of activities.
Astrid.
Pure sweetness!
Picturit: It is Robin, a great place to visit.
Astrid.
wow Astrid, this is amazing..ggreat shot!
Picturit: Thank you Ronky, it was great to visit it again, after almost 50 years.... grin..

Very Dutch, yes. But you can get more Dutch. Place a bicycle against the wall, for instance smile
Picturit: The bike was in the schuur.....smile Ik was er 50 jaar geleden geweest, met een schoolreisje.
Astrid.
Isn't that just lovely Astrid, and beautiful Tulips. So it wasn't just we English who had thatched roofs in time gone by, I live and learn.
Picturit: We have many thatched roof, mostly farmhouses, and still it is used for roofs.
It looks so wonderful, but expensive in insurance.
