The Purmerends Museum

The Purmerends Museum was created in 1942 and since 1955 it has been housed in the former town hall on the Kaasmarkt. This characteristic building was restored and adapted to a new museum in 1987. The Purmerends Museum has a varied collection relating to the town and the region. In addition to items for everyday use the collection comprises old prints, illustrations, maps and paintings, implements (including those used in the dairy industry), horse-leighs and pottery.
