The Gevangenismuseum is housed in a former ‘Dwanggesticht’ from the 19th century. In an interactive way, the visitor learns about how criminals were treated in the Netherlands from 1600 to the present. In addition, the museum covers the history of Veenhuizen as a prison town. Important in the museum is a ‘radbraakkruis’ from the 17th century and a wooden rack. Every Wednesday and Sunday afternoon a ‘boevenbus’ drives around the museum.
