Discover the Frisian in you 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!
Cool, robust and quirky; that’s what the Fries Museum is all about. From compelling exhibitions to intimate presentations and the versatility of the museum’s own collection. Discover all there is to know about the eleven cities (of the Elfstedentocht) and the rural area, the relationship with water, the quest for the true Frisian and the position of Friesland in the world.
Mata Hari and Grutte Pier
Dance with the mysterious Mata Hari, delve into her diary and discover her miserable fate as a suspected double agent. Fight the Dutch with the 16th-century rebel Grutte Pier or fall victim to his great sword if you can’t pronounce ""bûter brea en griene tsiis"" (""Butter, bread and green cheese, whoever can't say that is no genuine Frisian""). Be king or queen of Friesland for a day with the sparkling gold and silver from the terps (mounds). Or enjoy the work of famous artists from around the world and slow design by leading designers. Tough and durable, with an eye for tradition and craftsmanship.
During the school holidays, everybody has a great time at the Fries Museum!
