The DAF Museum received it’s 50 000th of the year, yesterday. The unsuspecting Groot grandparents and their grandchildren were warmly welcomed by Director Joost van den Bosch.
Rein-Jan and Teuni Groot took their grandchildren to the DAF Museum and were welcomed with flowers, a glass of champagne and many cameras. The family was clearly impressed by all the attention.
The Groot couple had visited the DAF Museum before with their own children. A generation later, the exhibition is still popular with Rein-Jan and Teuni.
The DAF Museum has seen considerable growth in its visitor numbers. Just a few years ago 40 000 people came to the automobile and truck exhibition on a yearly basis. Thanks to this success, there are plans for a major extension to the museum.
Director Boost van den Bosch hopes to begin, in two years, with the construction of 1 200 square meters of exhibition space, after which the goal of sixty thousand visitors per year will be quickly accomplished.
