  • This museum gives a good picture of West Friesland in the 17th century. Nice presentation in the basement shows how important Horn was at the time. Well furnished and good audio drive. Less suitable for children but it was there when we were there a special exhibition so that it is fun for them too.

  • Note: if you're visiting museums in NL, get a Museumkarte, giving you access to 40 museums, great value. The Westfries has great interiors, and the collection is beautifully presented.  more »

  • The Westfries museum is a great place to discover the history of the city of Hoorn. With beautiful paintings from the Dutch Golden age and many recreations of original living conditions. Next to that the building itself is also dated from the Golden age. I have visited the museum multiple times and have enjoyed it always. They also have a changing exposition and are constantly trying to deliver history in a new way.
  • A very beautiful and interesting place, makes history closer and more understandable. Love the hall of great Dutch discoveries !
  • Interesting local museum with special program for kids. Great for a rainy summers day
  • Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. It also had a really great VR experience
  • Little bit of culture can't go wrong
