  • A beautiful piece of architecture in the Centre of Leeuwarden is home to exhibits on the Friesen, the resistance, Mata Hari, many different artists and much more. A wonderful combination of modern and classic. During our visit there was in the lobby, a performance by a pianist and a cellist, what beautiful echoed through the building. Museum shop has unique stuff for sale, but is very pricey.

  • It was pleasant to be here. Definitely a compliment to the staff! The scavenger hunts (for my five year old son, and another for my nine year old daughter) were fun. The collection and exhibitions, however, were not impressive. Nevertheless, a pleasant visit!

  • Still have rarely seen such a nice museum: first super-motivated volunteers, secondly, beautiful architectural building and last but not least impressive collection.

  • The museum is very well organized, airy and well curated. I went there mainly to see the chintry exhibition and was pleasantly surprised.
  • I learned a lot despite my lack of Dutch. I'm sure it helped that I had a friend from the area with me translating but it was a good experience and a cool museum!
  • Logistic nightmare at Tadema exhibition. Make sure you get there early, very poor organization.
  • One of the best musea in the Netherlands. The new exposition about Alma-Tadema is simply wonderful. A must see!
  • Well designed innovative museum.
