Beautiful museum, the Dutch know how to make museum work. Every detail thoroughly thought through. Easy to navigate your way around and the with the portable headphones every exhibit was explained in detail.

It's like stepping into the past. The square around the front of the building is lined with beautiful historic buildings. The museum itself feels like a castle . The permanent exhibit is wonderful and the temporary ones were well chosen. The gift shop is a little limited . It is definitely worth making a stop at this museum.

We spent a good 1,5 hrs in this museum. It has a diverse collection with interesting highlighs of Zeeland tradition. And all if this is presented in an excellent way, combining modern and historic art.

It's quite okay. Was happy to have seen it, especially the movie about the province of Zeeland (where I was born) , the history and what it is like now. The carpets from the 1500's are also very impressive.

Please save your money and avoid this museum.I was actually born in Middelburg and thought I must have a look. There is hardly anything worthwhile to look at. The only interesting aspect is the building itself and its location. You certainly will not find anything of note regarding the county of Zeeland.

If tapestries are your thing you'll be in heaven in this portion of the Abbey converted to a museum. If they aren't there are a hundred other bits of museum lore you may find engaging. It is a small museum, not crowded, very walkable, and if you love museums you'll adore this one.

This is the most imaginatively-curated museum I have been to for many years. It is not too big to enjoy, but you can see most things in the space of an hour or two (depending on your level of interest). From the ground up (as I remember) 1st floor - costume from the area through the years - both national... More

The museum coffee was great ... but to be honest the museum itself did not warrant the cost of entry.

The Zeeuws Museum is housed in one of the buildings of the Middelburg Abbey, in the old centre of Middelburg, which is also reviewed on Tripadvisor. The museum has a collection of bits and pieces from everything it seems. There are items from the rich history of this town, some mammoth bones, some archaeological findings, some modern art, etc. The... More
