Attraction details
Owner description: The Fries Museum is dedicated to Friesland and the Frisian people. Its activities revolve around the eleven cities that make up the province and the surrounding countryside. These include the Frisians' love-hate relationship with water, the search for what defines the typical Frisian character, and Friesland's place in the wider world. The freedom fighter Grutte Pier's sword; old costumes and clothing; treasures from the Frisian mounds; the legacy of Mata Hari, the exotic dancer who was executed as a spy at the end of the First World War; Gerrit Benner's paintings; contemporary visual art; and the film de Overval: together these objects tell the story of Friesland.

If you are looking for a museum about Frisian history and culture, this is not it. It's mostly art and silver. The naturl history museum and verzetsmuseum are better. The small collection at the museum in Moddergat gave our foreign guests more information about what makes Friesland stand out than this big one in Leeuwarden.
