At this museum you will learn all about the history of prison life and criminal law in the Netherlands, a subject that affects us all.
From corporal punishment to solitary incarceration; at the permanent exhibition you will learn about how we have treated people who have broken laws and rules over the centuries. You will discover Veenhuizen’s surprising role in this history, and see and experience what life is like in today’s prisons. Don’t forget to also visit the temporary exhibition!
Please note that some (interactive) elements of the presentation are only available in Dutch.
We hope you have a great time at our unique museum!
