It will not come as a surprise that, in addition to its bell-foundry, Asten also boasts a bell or rather a carillon museum. In the National Carillon Museum you can familiarise yourself with products that Eijsbouts has been manufacturing for so many years. The collection includes historical bells from the surrounding region and supreme rare examples from foreign and distant cultures. The museum houses a complete carillon and a unique collection of tower clocks. The technique of moulding and casting bells is presented in a readily understandable manner. http://www.eijsbouts.com/index.php?page ... l_id=51816
Thanks go to John Euchus for bringing this to our attention. John will be posting more information and pictures of his visit soon.
