Nederlands Watermuseum

The case

The Dutch Water Museum in Arnhem, The Netherlands, focuses on information about all aspects of (fresh) water, such as water management, drinking water and water treatment. The museum opened in 2004 and has been operating without basic government support ever since.

Although still popular, the museum needs an upgrade. The museum entrusted TDAC with the realization of a bid book.


We began the process with a one-day workshop defining the mission and goals for the renewed museum. Together with the museum’s creative team, we developed an initial vision of what the renewed museum might look like. This vision formed the basis for a feasibility study and in collaboration with potential exhibit builders, a CAPEX estimate.

TDAC then compiled the 35-page bid book, which is now on its way to potential investors, sponsors and other stakeholders.
