17th Century

The Westfries Museum focuses on the Dutch Golden Age. Wander around 27 halls filled with artifacts relating to the history of the city of Hoorn, the Dutch East India Company, applied arts, the militia companies, trade and archaeology.


The museum is housed in the Statencollege national monument, which dates back to 1632. Together, the collection and building tell the story of the Dutch Golden Age, its brighter and darker sides, with a special focus on the Dutch East India Company. The museum astonishes visitors by combining the past with the present. Aside from the permanent collection, the museum also offers temporary exhibitions and various activities several times a year.
