Following World War II, the idea for a symbolic gift from "The People of the Netherlands to The People of the United States" met with generous response from all sections of the Netherlands. Queen Juliana presented a small silver bell to President Truman on May 5, 1952 as a symbol of the carillon to come. Her speech reflected what the world has learned from the war: So many voices in our troubled world are still unheard. Let that be an incentive for all of us when we hear the bells ringing."Concerts in May and September are from 2 - 4 p. m.; June, July and August concerts are from 6 - 8 p. m. Climb the tower and meet the guest carilloneur.
