For a piece of Eindhoven history you have to go to Leiden. That doesn’t really make sense, but the history of Philips is displayed at science museum Boerhaave.
The light bulb, radio and television, cd and even x-ray equipment. These are all devices that have been crucial Philips inventions. Inventions made in the Natlab, the ‘Natuurkundig Laboratorium’ (science lab) in Eindhoven.
Also the people behind the inventions come into the picture, with personal stories about curiosity, creativity and courage.
Museum Boerhaave, the museum that is showing five centuries of innovation in science and technology, is pleased with the special collaboration with Philips Research. "Philips is a Dutch company and part of our national identity," said Director Dirk van Delft. "This is because we can find Philips products we are familiar with from our living room to the hospital. The origin of those products lies mostly at Philips Research. The exhibition in Museum Boerhaave makes that unmistakable role visible."
The exhibition ‘100 Jaar Uitvindingen (100 years of inventions), Made by Philips Research’ is at museum Boerhaave in Leiden and runs until 26 October 2014.
