Want to know more about Nairac? In 1875, the then mayor of Barneveld, the lawyer mr. C.A. Nairac, decided it was time to set up a municipal museum. He designed an antiquities room and filled it with items of archaeological and historic value. This collection has been housed in the 17th-century building De Brouwerij, in the middle of the village, since 1975. An expansion in 2012 increased the museum’s size fourfold. The history of Barneveld is set out in an informative and creative way. How can smallholders survive by farming sandy soil? Who lived at Kasteel de Schaffelaar?
