Collecting ‘Petroliana’ is a passion we, as enthusiastic collectors, share. Finding that oilcan, gas pump or enamel sign you are looking for is rewarding. Through the years, we have acquired and built our collection and we are proud to present our museum: The House of Petrol.
With over 50 gas pumps from different manufacturers, a wide collection of enamel signs, petrol cans, oil cans, oil bottles and pourers, lubesters, various classic cars and other garage items we hope to provide a museum to be enjoyed by collectors, petrolheads and petrol enthusiasts from all over the world.
Our ambition is to add value to historical knowledge of the period approximately from 1900 till 1960 regarding the world of service stations, the various brands delivering oil and gasoline and all associated businesses like car manufacturers and miscellaneous items. Please contact us if you have stories or items regarding the history of petrol, information is always welcome.
We are open on appointment only, for individuals and groups (max. 20 persons). Group visits have our preference. It is possible to wander around yourself or to be guided through the collection.
