About the museum

Staphorst, a town with many faces, appeals to the imagination. The long ribbon development with its colorful farmhouses, the traditional costumes which are still being worn plentifully, and the many traditions and customs, these make Staphorst a unique town.

The museum offers you ample opportunity to explore the rich cultural past and present of Staphorst. The Staphorst museum is housed in a traditionally built farmhouse, decorated in a typically Staphorst style; the living area is still in the original state and you will see how people formerly lived. The section that was once the barn, is now used as an exhibition space. You will find here (changing) exhibitions displaying regional dress, jewelry and folk art.

The farm that is located in front of the original farmhouse, has been used as an entrance and reception area since 2016.
