“Small, but good”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

I grew up in the area, but have only been to this museum one other time. My husband and I made a random trip a few days ago. It is small in size, but really contains a lot of information about Holland's heritage, growth and development over the years. Currently, there is an exhibit of Nazi propaganda posters- that was very interesting. The upstairs area has some very nice paintings and artwork- including one tiny Rembrandt. :) Overall- I would recommend this museum. It it is even free to Holland residents.

“Excellent Small Museum”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We took our three grandchildren to this charming museum. The primary exhibit area included many artifacts about the Dutch culture, boating, Lake Macatawa, etc. The temporary exhibit of Nazi Propaganda posters was fascinating. The second floor has an assortment of furniture (amazing) and art. With a family, allow an hour to an hour and a half. Adults without children would spend about two hours probably.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

There are some magnificent paintings upstairs. Ask about the love story relating to the spectacular oil on wood portraits.

“Nice museum, but a bit expensive”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

I really liked the temporary exhibits and the permanent exhibit was very nice as well. The admission was $10 per person though (I think) and I think that was a bit expensive for the amount of things to see in the museum. It was nice nonetheless.

“Interesting”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

While at Tulip Festival my sister and I went to the Holland Museum. They had some interesting exhibits from the early years, paintings, furniture. Some really interesting pieces. There were people available to answer any questions and tell you more facts about the exhibits. It was well worth the price of admission and took about an hour.
