Utrecht is the city smaller than it exists in the Netherlands. In fact, it is not a very famous city or where we pruned to amuse to us everywhere anywhere… That yes, is different from the cities that we pruned to visit and perhaps that difference is the one that makes be special.


In Utrecht there are many forms of which, an enthusiastic historian, it can have his paradise, and are that the art and the culture in Utrecht go of the hand showing to us a series of places the everyone best one the previous one.

A zone exists, the Museumplain call (Place of the Museums) where a union of several Museums forms altogether, museums from the Christian art to the contemporary art.

Speaking of those Museums, in Utrecht we can be:

- Clocks Musicales and Organillos. She is one of the exhibitions more beautiful than we can see since the compared clocks of nowadays are not nothing with the old clocks, those that you could give a button and to listen to an pleasant melody, that all that could pay for took it one. It was so the passion by music a few centuries ago that was the reason by that the boxes of music were created, boxes that contained the feelings that a song can lodge.

In this museum we will be able to know samples those old boxes of music and clocks. In addition, in the Museum “They go Speelklok tot Pierement? we will be able to know why the pieces are used at the same time as we see different objects from exhibition (that give desire you to caress…).
