A piece of history
Dance with the mysterious Mata Hari, delve into her diary and discover her sad fate as a possible double agent. Battle the Dutch with 16th-century rebel Grutte Pier or fall prey to his enormous sword if you can't say 'bûter brea en griene tsiis'.
Feel like 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 by leading designers - tough and durable, with an eye for tradition and craftsmanship. In the Frisian Resistance Museum you get to know hungry children who were housed in the Frisian countryside to recuperate.
Plenty to see and do
In addition to the many exhibitions, it is also possible to do workshops or to join an artist in residence or to take a guided tour. Always wanted when an archaeologist wanted to collect potsherds or paint a self-portrait in Golden Age style, everything is possible. During the school holidays, there is plenty to do in the Fries Museum.
And before you go home, visit the museum shop where you will find the best gifts with a Frisian touch, such as felt work by artist Claudy Jongstra and hand-painted trays from Hindeloopen, but also that one special Frisian-language children's book.
