    Assen, Drents Museum

    by sachara Updated Aug 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In Assen at the central Brink in a former Government building the Drents Museum is situated.

    In the museum are permanent and temporary exhibitions of archaeology (artefacts of the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Roman Era, found in Drenthe), silver, textiles, art including Vincent Van Gogh.
    Interesting is the story about peat, the moor corpses and the girl of Yde. You can also use an interactive geo-explorer with touch-screen, to go back in time.

    In 2004 the museum existed 150 year. There was an very impressive temporary international exhibition "The mysterious Bog People''

    In the museum you can also find a nice shop and the ''Cafe Krul'' in Art Nouveau style for a drink and special dishes connected with the themes of the exhibitions.

    Opening hours of the museum:
    11 AM to 5 PM
    Entrance fee:
    5 euro for adults
    For more information check the museum website.

    Some 20 kilometers from Assen is Roden, a nice little village.Besides shopping around town and walking in the woods one can visit the Toys Museum.This musuem has all kinds of toys where children once played with. Inside the museum a lot of toys to look at. Children (or grown ups) can even play with some of the toys.The museum has a yard where one can cycle on old bikes, go in the merry go round or trundle a hoople.

    Eelde is a small place just south of the city Groningen. It is most known for the local airport. But there's also a very nice museum! Have a look at my Eelde page (link below)

    Borger is famous for the prehistorical dolmen. Human graves made out of enormous stones. It's really a must-see! There is a visitor's center that explains everything.
