Children's Museum

Radboud Castle is also a treat for children. Parts of our exhibitions have been specially arranged for them. In addition, there is a play loft, for them to draw, play or do crafts in between.

Radboud Castle-Gerrie flies

Gerrie the lion dragon

Join Gerrie the lion dragon on a journey through time! In the audio tour, Gerrie tells you more about the castle and life in the Middle Ages. But our mascot doesn't know everything either. Do you?


To a castle belongs a falconer! In good weather this summer, our house falconer Birdlive will take you through the history of falconry in the Netherlands and its magnificent birds of prey. You can admire the majestic birds up close with your own eyes and, given the right conditions, even see them fly.

Would you like to do medieval crafts? Come Lucets in Radboud Castle!

A lucet is a kind of fork with two prongs around which you wrap threads. You can compare it to punning. In the Middle Ages it was widely used to make jacket clasps. Lucets is included in the museum visit.

Play loft

Time for a break during your museum visit? In the playroom you'll find coloring pages, a shuffleboard, foosball table and many more toys. On some days you can also do crafts with our craftswoman. And afterwards you just pick up where you left off.

Have fun!


Wonderful place to go especially during theme weekends. Nice games for staff parties. Good exhibits. For the kids fun games, a nice play loft, a scavenger hunt and a nice diploma if they completed it. In short, definitely recommended to go.
