The Website of the Museum
(formerly the Nationaal Beiaard- en Natuurmuseum Asten,
or National Carillon and Nature Museum Asten) is ostensibly in three languages,
though some pages (and some parts of pages) are only in Dutch.
The Carillon Museum (founded in 1969) merged with the Natural History Museum
(founded in 1975) effective 1 Jan 2007.
The home page sometimes includes a photo of children at a 20-note baton keyboard.
Scroll down for an outdoors photo of the bells of the Springcarillon;
in the background can be seen the green (oxidized copper) tower which holds
an automatic carillon,
as well as the peaked roof under which this chime and another one hang indoors.
The location of the fourth chime is uncertain.
Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry,
in this region
and in the world.
