  • A not expected but very pleasant museum. Very worth it! We have in this particular building seen much about the past of Veendam and the surrounding area. Very nice people in the museum shop!

  • A wonderful time travel experience with walk through dioramas depicting the story of the peat ( Veen ) region of the northern Netherlands. Museum also shows the development of the shipbuilding paper and starch industries through to modern times. When we visited there was also an art exhibition of the current 'Groninger Ploeg' or Society of artists with some stunning works. Was a lovely day out. Museum has a well catered cafĂ© as well. Worth a visit.
  • My old school; now a museum with permanent also temporary exhibitions. Beautiful construction for restaurant
