  • Very interesting museum and at this time a really nice exhibition on the vacations of the past. And of course the history of the peat and the potato starch industry.

  • Once arrived at the museum, we were very friendly the route in led. There was a lot of information about the origin of the peat colonies but also which played around it. There was also a fine cinema with old movies of yesteryear. A trip back in time. The Exchange exhibition about the phenomenon of camping delivered a stream of memories on. Very nicely done all and that everything in a beautiful building. Really a great location though! As "icing on the cake" we got in the opposite eetcafé on presentation of the ticket of the museum also at discounted price a delicious Cup of coffee. The moment came to take what we had seen by!

  • This is a good opportunity, to much knowledge of economic history of Veendam and surroundings. Never knew that that was so versatile! The Museum exhibits are here and there what jaded, there should do.

  • 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 café as well. Worth a visit.
  • My old school; now a museum with permanent also temporary exhibitions. Beautiful construction for restaurant
