For a study trip we went to the Philips museum. We were given a tour of an old employee, who could tell us passionately about the story of Philips. It was very interesting to see a piece of the old "factory".

Philips is set up in Eindhoven, so you should pay a visit when you get to there. 9 euros for the tickets. I just spent 30 mins there because I was a bit in rush. But approximately 1 hour is enough~
