I visited this museum various times over 30 years at the old location at Schiphol Airport and the new location at Lelystad Airport.

Sadly I have no photo's of the Schiphol location but the collection has grown at Lelystad.

The last few years the museum has become more of a themepark then a museum. So, If you ever pay a visit to Aviodrome beware of the screaming kids...

But the collection is still impressive.

 

Here are some photo's of my last 2 visits in 2010 & 2015.

Related to the old Fokker:
An old fighter pilot visiting a high school class speaking about his experiences during WW2:
I was flying along the coast one day, he said, and these three fokkers jumped me out of the sun, all the youngsters giggled cause he swore, but the teacher settled them down and explained that fokkers were a type of airplane used during the war. Carry on she told the old blooke - where was I he said, oh thats right, anyway I was flying along when suddenly i was jumped out of the sun by these three fokkers in thier mesuresmitts.

(Edited, as I found this wording much better)

That is a BAT Bantam. It is British buildt but designed by Frits Koolhoven. It is now located at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.
There were a handfull of these planes buildt in the Netherlands. But this one is British buildt.

A favourite of mine!
Take note of the slot in the rear fuselage for the trust reverser :-o
Sadly the hinged rudder-plane (for accomodating under Highway bridges) isn't to reckognize at this picture :-(
