  • In the Frisian museum is now an exhibition about Mata Hari. Nice spacious set up with fun facts about her. Too bad the basic black is of the walls, making it very dark looks. Later in the museum is also a small resistance museum. There are, in particular, personal items, such as personal identification card or a homemade wedding gown of curtain fabric. Impressive to the personal stories to read. The exhibition is not very large. The building itself of the Frisian Museum is modern and bright, right in the Centre.

  • Gives wonderful insight and overview m.b.t. the life of the legendary character Mata Hari. The exhibition showed how dramatically her life was.

  • In connection with the European capital 2018 I wanted for a long time to the exhibition of Mata Hari. In addition to a few nice items is the a lot of reading. Walls are filled and there are very many letters on display. The latter are often in French. There are also a lot of stuff which is: This is possible worn/used by Mata Hari. In short insinuations which I personally don't like. I found interesting especially the life story: what is her background and that of the family where they came from, what's happening in her life? Her own family? In itself rather nice, but disappointed me by many many many read work. We have yet another exhibition viewed: Phantom Limb. This was fantastic. Bit surreal, it really puts your brain on the wrong leg. Example: a black and white photo we can very well with our brains. But what if you're in a real black and white room? All in shades of gray, just everyday things ... too bizarre. Is really worth it! Soon comes the exhibition about Escher ... another celebrity from Leeuwarden. I really hope that performance better than about Mata Hari. I'm going to be a day for to Leeuwarden!

  • Enough to get to know a bit about the region's history. Some sections do not have English translation. Modern, spacious building.
  • The museum looks kinda cold at first sight, as an artist I can say decoration it's an important issue when we talk about art but still a nice place to visit.
  • Went to the Mata Hari exhibit and it was very well done. Both Dutch and English. The cafe at the ground level was good as well.
  • Amazing place. Beautiful Mata Hari exposition and lots more.
  • Actually this is the best museum in Netherlands i've been to so far. You have the audio guide for free. I spent lots time in friesland exhibit, those pics and letters are really touching for me. And all those interaction are designed in a interesting way. Really enjoy it. I would say the way they set the exhibition recently about Mata Hari is a art itself. I haven't had enough time for that. Definitely will go there again.
