Weegschaal Museum (Scale Museum)


In daily life, we do not think about the origin of the kilo or the meter. What exactly is calibration and what does Napoleon have to do with it? Why is it that a kilo is the same everywhere in the world? Is a kilo still a kilo on the moon?

In the Scale Museum, you will find a wealth of educational information for all ages. With a visit to the museum, you will discover the origin of measuring and weighing and the multitude of applications of measuring and weighing will be shown. In the Calibration Office, you can discover how measures and weights were calibrated, calibrated, and adjusted in the past.
