(Review in Dutch)

Tijdens een fietstocht door de prachtige omgeving een bezoek gebracht aan dit museum, waar ik per toeval voorbij kwam. Erg interessant om te zien hoe de verschillende vestingsteden in Nederland zijn ontstaan en bijzonder om de kazematten te bekijken. Mocht het weer er naar zijn, dan is het ook zeker de moeite waard om op het terras te zitten met een stuk overheerlijke appeltaart.
