Few Dutch football clubs are as embedded within the local community as NAC.
The club has a rich history in sports (including national championship (1921) and winning the KNVB cup (1973). Its social history, however, is perhaps even more interesting. Thousands of people come to the Rat Verlegh stadium every two weeks for the popular ‘NAC Night’.
The stadium is a great meeting place for friends, fathers and sons and even complete strangers sharing the same passion.
Around the year 200, a group of passionate supporters decided to work together to try and make the unique history of the club more visible. This eventually led to the opening of the NAC Museum in 2002. It’s located next to the tracks of the Rat Verlegh Stadium, below Box G.
The museum is filled with stories. See the founding meeting of the club or experience that legendary cup final once again. Also the sad events can be relived here, like the SLM disaster at the Zanderij airport in Surinam. One of the victims was the much loved Andro Knel.
The museum was entirely modernized in 2014. An intimate cinema will make you feel as though you’re on the field during the NAC Night. Interactive screens give more insight into certain topics and many items are now contextualized with videos and sound recordings.
Real soccer fans will love the museum tour to take a peek inside this authentic club. There might not be an extensive prize cabinet but the NAC Museum proves prizes are by no means necessary for a compelling history.
Groups of ten or more people by appointment only!
