Observeum and its collection

Observeum is the only museum in the Netherlands with a large Middle Stone Age exhibition. It is based on years of scientific research and excavations on the banks of the Burgumermar. We also show the contrast between "rich and poor" in the 19th century, the 'Golden Age of the Frisian farmer' and how Hendrik Bulthuis made sailing affordable for everyone in the 20th century with the BM. New are the expositions about medieval Monastic life and Geology. Our public observatory is also unique for the Northern Netherlands. On Friday evening it is Stargazing Night and telescopes and digital planetarium are ready for you. There are two presentations in our planetarium every afternoon.
