Dekema State is a former manor house (‘state’) located on an estate with moats, an orchard with old varieties of fruit and an ornamental garden and a forest park. The house is decorated as was common around 1930, just before the Second World War. The museum illustrates life and work during that time. One of the rooms is rebuilt in late Amsterdam style, with many portraits of former residents.
