The history of Thorn goes back to Roman times. The small museum "Het land van Thorn" aims to inform about the history of Thorn through the ages. If you visit Thorn, it is likely that you are interested in Thorn's history, including visiting the St. Michaël's church for instance. Then you should visit this museum also. What is really a highlight of the museum is the panorama of Thorn. A diorama, painstakingly built by Frans van den Berg and Theo van der Linden during eight years of work. Entrance to the museum is for a fee; the Dutch annual museum pass is accepted here.

It was always fine to be back to this small "White Town", Thorn. It was during the lockdown so the museum was not open. The museum is not only a museum but also a tourist information centre and art stage.

This museum tells the history of Thorn starting with mammoth bones, stone age and some Roman archeological finds, and so on until recent history. The history of the abbey is told, as well as the troubles surrounding the mint right. After a French invasion the nuns left Thorn for Essen, and the people of Thorn were left in poverty. The baking of roof tiles and later mining offered new sources of income. There's a large model of the village, and in the basement there are many paintings of scenes from Thorn. From the most recent history there is some information about the music harmonies.

This museum is a nice place to see the development of Thorn through ages. It shows how this place was in the Roman time, in the medieval centuries, as well as in the later ones. The audio guide is provided also in English, thus non-Dutch speakers are well informed about the town.

Recommended for a visit of 1-2 hours.
