Discover your inner Frisian at the Fries Museum. The collections include stunning silverware, the diary of Mata Hari, contemporary art and slow design. Don’t miss this brand-new museum!
The Fries Museum is a lively institution in the center of the vibrant city of Leeuwarden. Step inside the modern building and be inspired by your favorite stories or artworks. Grutte Pier’s sword, a romantic painting by world-famous artist Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Gerrit Benner’s enchanting landscape... Or indeed the courageous adventures of Mata Hari.
The museum is the cultural hotspot in the north of the Netherlands. Learn about topics ranging from the Middle Ages to M.C. Escher, in surprising temporary exhibitions. Immerse yourself in Frisia, from the unique period room in Hindeloopen style and the battle against the sea to trendsetting design and prominent artists such as Rembrandt and Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. At the Fries Verzetsmuseum, discover touching, confrontational stories that can make you think. Stories about resistance and persecution in World War II, but also about the freedom we have today. The fourth floor displays contemporary art by well-known and up-and-coming national and international artists.
