      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=main.php?id=51816&real_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.
