  • A nice museum that takes you on the history of the peat to the shipping carton until the straw. Old ship outside lies with a quay with nostalgic Café and shop. This in a historic hbs school building makes it look well worth it.

  • An intimate museum, where the atmosphere and the beauty of the hard life of the former peat colonies Groningen palpable and visible. Nice style rooms and interesting exhibitions. The museum shop with its many history books is for me the address for original gifts. For children is the game room very nice, with a life-size Winkel van Sinkel, playhouses from grandmother's time and a lot of dress up clothes.
