The Website of the Nationaal Beiaard- en Natuurmuseum Asten (National Carillon and Nature Museum Asten) is In Dutch (full text), English (PDF brochure only), German (few pages) and French (in preparation).  The Carillon Museum (founded in 1969) merged with the Natural History Museum (founded in 1975) effective 1 Jan 2007.  There is a page about the Springcarillon; in the background of one photo can be seen the green (oxidized copper) tower which hold one chime, as well as the peaked roof under which another chime hangs indoors.  The location of the fourth is uncertain.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Eijsbouts bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
