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.

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 exhibit descriptions are in Dutch only, which makes it a real challenge. Having my Dutch wife along made it much more accessible, but for pure Anglos, this will make much of the museum a challenge to understand.

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!

Had expected more from this particularly bearing in mind the high entrance fee. (Note uk credit and debit cards could not be used so you need cash.) Not enough local history, plus lack of English translation for most of the exhibits (or indeed subtitles on the films) meant we did not get as much enjoyment from this as we had hoped. (Definitely need to download the google translate app before you go! ) Would only rate fairly highly the top floor section on the Second World War.
The building itself is interesting.

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.

Amersfoort has a small but beautiful city center (surrounded by vast tracts of modern office buildings). Flehite is located on the edge between the old and new. The building itself is worth the trip, both exterior and interior. In addition: a great exhibit of cityscapes by eight artists. Show toppers are the extraordinarily detailed drawings from Stefan Bleekrode.

Enjoyed the visit to this very interesting museum mainly to learn more about the history of Amersfoort. The other exhibitions being held were a bonus.

Being used to free museums in the UK I found the Euro 17 entrance charge rather high in view of the content (it did include a free cup of tea).
Architecturally the building is a visual treat.

At the moment there is a special exhibition on concerning Gerard Hordijk who was a neighbour and friend of Modriaan when they both lived in New York.

Interesting museum but nothing outstanding.

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 liked the outside, with giant tree sculpture and strange little garden of curiosities over to one side, better than the what was inside and had to be paid for!
