From the beginning of cigar making until the end there were about 70 larger and smaller cigar factories in Valkenswaard. The largest of these were of international reputation.
The smell of the cigar has left Valkenswaard, but not in the museum. There you can still sniff it and see how the cigar makers practised their profession. Tools, instruments, machinery and gadgets, in short, everything needed in the cigar industry can be seen. And with a bit of luck you will meet with a real cigar maker.
