She also build a beautiful garden the Prinsentuin (garden of the prince) behind her house. In her house she could walk from her home right to the garden. Nowedays ther is a street between her house and the garden
The house is in itself very nice but where you come for is of course the ceramics.
The collection started with the collection of sir Hannema, he gave his collection to the museum
Later there came more and more but the chinese and japanese collection is still the hart of the museum.
Mostley there is a special excibition; at the moment it is the wonders of the Ming dynasty.
And when you are in Leeuwarden, there is enough to see in the city and the islands are not far away. take a bus and a boat and you are within a few hours in Vlieland Terschelling , Ameland or Schiermonnikoog
