The Fries Museum has been located in Leeuwarden since 1881 and is entertainment for all. You could visit the museum for the Frisian history, but you could also visit the newest exhibitions. The Fries Museum tells stories about the eleven cities and the quest to define the 'typical Frisian man or woman', and much more. If you like history, this place is definitely worth a visit.
The Fries Verzetsmuseum is a part of the Fries Museum. The stories of the Frisian and non-Frisian people who lived in the countryside between 1940 and 1945 have been told.
