• 13:00-17:00 – Walk/multimedia tour

Audio tour along the former freight track.

Radio documentary maker Joost Wilgenhof and sound designer Marten Koldijk have specially made a multimedia story tour for Museum Perron Oost. The route starts on the Cruquiusweg at Museum Perron Oost, continues along more than twenty special spots, and ends at the far point of the Cruquiuseiland at the Magnus Metaal fencing. Visitors discover the remarkable history of the area from stories on their smartphones. Wilgenhof collected the stories from newspaper articles, historical photos and interviews with (former) residents. Koldijk also made the music and reads the texts.

The audio tour can be downloaded using the Izi Travel app for iPhone and Android.

Museum Perron Oost

Since April 2013 Museum Perron Oost has revealed stories from old and new residents of the Eastern port area in Amsterdam in various art forms. At the heart there is the platform with rail track, wagon and platform kiosk on the Cruquiusweg, a monument that designer Joep van Lieshout created some twenty years ago using original materials.
