  • I had a great time in this museum. The collection was really worth a visit. Definitely a great place to visit. I was listening to the audiotour, gave nice information.

  • This delightful museum in Hoorn's historic town square may be small but is packed with many riches of Holland's 'Golden Age'. It contains the history - in models, paintings, furniture, ceramics, artefacts - of the VOC, the once-famed 16th-18th century Dutch trading company. It's well worth spending an hour or two and can easily fit into a day trip. Tip: make sure to see Hendrik Vroom's marine painting 'View of Hoorn' (1622) and Tineke Fischer's 2018 art installation 'Nootmuskaat en Folie', a beautiful memorial to the people of the Spice Islands. Special mention also to the museum's friendly and helpful staff.
  • November 2021: I have visited a really nice museum, I recommend it.
