This exhibition in The Utrecht Archives is the perfect place to find out more about how Utrecht developed and hear the accounts of local residents. Modern animation techniques bring the archives and the people who played an important role in the history of Utrecht to life. Discover how the wharfs were built, how Utrecht became a student city, experience the first edition of the popular Lowlands music festival (which used to be held in the Jaarbeurs) and see how the water once disappeared from the canals – only to return later. You can even get on a bike and go on a virtual bike tour of modern-day Utrecht, while historical images flash before your eyes.
