Discover, experience and get to know the impressive history of Weesp

In the magnificent town hall, dating from 1776, Museum Weesp tells the story of the town and its inhabitants.

Weesp was mainly known for its manufacturing industry; for centuries trade and  industry ruled. You will find out about the famous Weesp porselain (the first porselain

ever produced in the Netherlands), the tasty history of the Van Houten chocolate factory and of course the rich history of the local beer brewers and gin distillers.And lets not forget the vast archaelogical collection!


Fun for kids!

There’s lots to do in our museum for kids: dressing up as a count or countess, making a selfie in the dungeons, turning into an archeologist, discovering the miniature town hall and trying to find an escaped criminal. We also regularly offer special guided tours and other related activities for kids.
