The Grutterswinkel

In the old days, supermarkets were in the form of small gruttershops, and in the heart of Leeuwarden you can still find such a shop. When you open the door, it is as if you are walking into history; the shelves are still filled with products from the past (which are, by the way, still for sale). On the top floor, you will find an exhibition about the history of the grocery business.

Frisian Nature Museum

At the Nature museum in Friesland you get to discover everything about nature you could imagine. Due to the ever changing exhibitions and activities programs there is always something new to discover. The museum has four floors each filled with information regarding special animals and plants, and with assignments and experiments you can perform. 


Fries Museum

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.
