The Veenkoloniaal Museum is a cultural history museum dedicated to the Groningen ‘Veenkoloniën’. The museum covers East Groningen, peat growth and the ‘Bourtanger Moor’. The permanent collection consists of two subcollections: a maritime collection and a collection with objects related to the agricultural industry. The maritime collection focusses on the heyday of the ‘Veenkoloniale Zeevaart‘ around the 19th century. The agricultural industry collection mainly focusses on the industries that were connected to the ‘veenkoloniën’, such as potato flour and cardboard factories.
