Pictures of the museum



A town with many faces, appeals to the imagination.

The long ribbon development with its colorful

farmhouses, the traditional costumes which are still

being worn plentifully, and the many traditions and customs, these make Staphorst a unique town.







The Museum 

The museum offers you ample opportunity to explore

the rich cultural past and present of Staphorst.

The Staphorst museum is housed in a traditionally

built farmhouse, decorated in a typically Staphorst

style; the living area is still in the original state and

you will see how people formerly lived. The section

that was once the barn, is now used as an exhibition space. You will find here (changing) exhibitions

displaying regional dress, jewelry and folk art.
