The museum is housed in 3 historic buildings (close to 500 years old) - which alone makes it worthwhile visiting! They are part of the so called Muurhuizen, and were painted as such already back in 1671 (Matthias Withoos). The museum itself was founded late 19th century. The collection contains over 24,000 items: paintings, objects (like a motorbike, and matchboxes),... More

If you really want to know about Amersfoort's past and history, this is the place you must visit. The staff is super nice and you'll find a lot of interesting things, which is sad that they're in dutch if you don't speak it.

This museum was interesting and rather charming. Unfortunately all labelling is written in Dutch, so we had to make our own inferences about each exhibit! While I enjoyed the museum and found it a nice way to while away half an hour, i feel that you get very little for the price, as the Flehite is very small. I actually... More

They have a nice collection of paintings and it's a pleasure to walk arround. However, it's a bit odd to walk suddenly from a room full paintings of Dutch masters into a sort of (permanent)exhibition about WWII. When we were there, half the museum was closed because of a renovation so this means that we will return to have a... More

The fixed collection has some nice paintings. I myself love the huge panorama by Withoos. The temporary expositions in general are great!

Close to the impressive Koppelpoort, you can find the small but interesting Flehite museum. The collection is varied, from old - and contemporary paintings to art from different materials, exhibitions (like Month Of The History) and actitvities for children.

This museum shows exhibitions with various works of art and applied arts. There is also a room across the canal that shows how old people were kept in a home. In the summer months there are volunteers that act as if it still is 1907. Great for kids!

We went to this very nice little museum with two boys, 4 and 6. There are interactive displays of interest for kids. A mix of historical and contemporary exhibits, well done in an authentic canal house, actually a conglomerate of 3 old Dutch canal houses. There is a great treasure hunt for kids, but in Dutch only, unfortunately. All the... More

The Flehite Museum is small enough to really enjoy and linger, yet large enough and with enough fascinating historical items that range from the Bronze Age to children's toys of the 1900's. The scale model of the old city is very cool.

Okay it was all in Dutch but what a little gem of a museum. Even a disinterested teenager enjoyed wandering round. Filed a pleasant couple of hours and a nice, inexpensive cafe for a snack or coffee.
