How do we deal with death? This is the central question at Museum Tot Zover. Children can discover the museum and the graveyard with Little Hein. This character is named after Magere Hein, the Dutch term for the Grim Reaper.

A source of inspiration

Learn more about dying and what comes afterwards. Museum Tot Zover is the best place to reflect on death-related topics. The only real Dutch funeral museum can be a source of inspiration. Tot Zover deals with how people cope with death based on the following themes: rituals, the body, mourning and remembrance, and memento mori. The collection includes hair paintings, death masks, coffins, urns and miniature hearses.

Little Hein

Children can discover the museum and the graveyard with Little Hein. This character is named after Magere Hein, the Dutch term for the Grim Reaper. Far from being grim (magere means ‘thin’), he leads children in activities that help them learn about bidding farewell, mourning and rituals in other cultures.
