Tough, tough and quirky? Discover the Frisian in you at the Fries Museum! Here you will discover everything about the eleven Frisian towns and the countryside, the love-hate relationship with the water, the search for the typically Frisian and Friesland’s place in the world.
Dance with the mysterious Mata Hari, delve into her diary and discover her sad fate as a possible double agent. Fight with 16th-century rebel Grutte Pier against the Dutch or fall prey to his huge sword if you can’t say ‘bûter brea and griene tsiis’. Feel like the king or queen of Friesland for a moment with the sparkling gold and silver from the mounds. Or enjoy the work of (world) famous artists and slow design by leading designers – tough and durable, with an eye for tradition and craftsmanship. At the Fries Verzetsmuseum, you will meet starving children who were housed in the Frisian countryside to recuperate.
