The Hannemahuis is one of the oldest buildings in the center of Harlingen, and has housed the Gemeentemuseum Het Hannemahuis since 1957. History, for example of whaling and jenever, takes center stage here.


The Hannemahuis is fun for young and old alike. Come aboard in the maritime section. Learn how jenever is made in the distillery. Discover how Harlingen tiles became a famous export product. Marvel at the glittering silverware by Harlingen artisans. Ask for advice on buying a 17th-century painting in the art dealer’s shop, which dates back to 1816.
