21 May - 25 May

Museum of Fossil Fuels in De Plantage


An exhibition of an energy company in a museum full of old ships and diesel engines. Perhaps not the most logical combination, but from 21 May it is, in De Plantage.

Vattenfall presents the world’s first fossil fuel museum. You can visit this exhibition in Museum ’t Kromhout in Amsterdam from 21 to 25 May. A glimpse into the hopefully very near future, in which the smell of petrol and diesel and the sound of roaring engines belong to the past, just like the old ships and their diesel engines can already be found in Museum ’t Kromhout.

In 2019, the exhibition was already on display in Sweden, in line with Vattenfall’s ambition to move towards fossil-free living in one generation. With this museum, Vattenfall wants to show that what is still part of our lives every day will soon belong in a museum.

The podcast ‘Radio Fossil Freedom’ brings a future without fossil fuels to life. What social discussions are held then? Which dishes do we put on the table in the evening? And how does the music sound?

The exhibition can be visited free of charge from Saturday 21 to Wednesday 25 May from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In Museum ’t Kromhout at 25 Kruithuisstraat in Amsterdam.
