The Valkerij en Sigarenmakerij Museum has two collections. The Valkerij Museum covers the history of falconry from 1650 to 1850. During this period people from the noble class and kings entertained their guests with the ‘vederspel’. The Sigarenmakerij museum illustrates the development of cigar making in Valkenswaard from 1865. The connection between both museums is the falconer Richard Hamond, who lived Valkenswaard. When he died in 1845 he gave 24,000 guilders to Jan Best, who started a cigar factory in 1865.
