Museum information

Discover the Frisian in yourself in the Fries Museum! You go there for a cup of coffee, an original gift or a movie visit - but especially for the museum of course. Here you will discover everything about the eleven cities and the countryside, the love-hate relationship with the water, the search for the typical Frisian and the place of Friesland in the world.

Dance with the mysterious Mata Hari, dive into her diary and discover her sad fate as possible doublespionne. Fight with the 16th century rebel Grutte Pier against the Dutch or fall prey to his enormous sword if you can not say 'bûter brea en griene tsiis'. Just feel the king or queen of Friesland with the sparkling gold and silver from the mounds. Or enjoy work by (world) famous artists and slow design from leading designers - tough and durable, with an eye for tradition and craftsmanship. In the Frisian Resistance Museum you get acquainted with hunger children who were housed in the Frisian countryside to strengthen.

Visit one of the many exhibitions, plunge into a surprising workshop or join an artist in residence. During the school holidays it is a crazy place in the Fries Museum. If an archaeologist is looking for pot shards or painting a self-portrait in Golden Age style, it's all possible. And do not forget to bring home a special souvenir. In the museum shop you will find the best gifts with a Frisian touch: felted work by artist Claudy Jongstra and hand-painted trays from Hindeloopen, but also that special Frisian-language children's book.

Whether you are celebrating holidays in the neighborhood, being a Frisian or just loving things: you do not want to miss this brand new museum.
