The museum offers a scavenger hunt for both kids and adults and we had a good time finding everything on it (hint: most of it was focused around the third floor.) Lots of the artefacts there were very old and some were from b.c too!...More

Situated in side an old abbey courtyard, this small museum captures the local history with beautiful tapestries, and depicting scenes of the war between Spain and The Netherlands, which lasted 80 years, during the 1500s and 1600s.

The Museum of Zeeland is located at a perfect spot. Right in the hart of middlebrouh which used to function as a defence against Vikings. The museum itself has nice artifacts as well.

That was a nice museum. We had good time see some historical stuff and kids learn some history of this province and NL. That's important to see.

Our family arranged prior to the visit a guided tour. The tour guide was very enthusiastic and sit to this fact the exhibition was pretty much far more interesting then just walking around and take a look. The tapestries are impressive.
