From bike taxes to bikes used for smuggling; the Tax & Customs Museum is a contemporary museum on societally relevant themes. The museum offers a historic and cultural experience for young and old alike through its collection, exhibitions and activities.
A tour of discovery
Go on a tour of discovery in the Tax & Customs Museum and let yourself be surprised. Special objects and stories offer you a thematic and interactive peek into our history of taxation. What kind of items were subject to excise duties and tolls in the past? When was the bike tax dropped?
This theme inspired artists like Isaac Israëls, Jan van Goyen and Jurriaen Pool II. The installations of contemporary artists Caspar Berger and Rueben Margolin give this subject a modern twist.
A different point of view
Share your thoughts with the museum’s Luisterend Oor (listening ear) or relax underneath the Belastingplafond (tax ceiling) and watch the parade of tax provisions go by. See what tax money has been spent on over the centuries and witness the development of the Netherlands. In short, discover the world of taxation from the other side and share your thoughts with the listening ear.
Museum café and garden
After your visit, relax in the pleasant café or, if weather permits, the inner garden.
