Drents Museum - Review
Giving you a glimpse into the Assen’s history, art and culture, the Drents museum is considered to be numero uno when it comes to best things to do in Assen apart from watching races! Offering you a brilliant exhibit of collections assimilated over centuries, this attraction was opened in the 18th-century, the year 1854 to be precise. You maybe lucky to chance upon some interesting temporary exhibitions. If not, the wide array of collectibles of applied art, visual art and prehistoric artifacts, which is permanent can always be relied on.
Of all the artefacts here, if there was one thing to be called as the highlight of the museum, it would most definitely be its bog bodies! Coming second after the bog bodies is the statue of Anne de Vries’s books’ main character Bartje Bartels! All in all a great place to spend a few hours in the day.

Drents Museum, Assen Reviews
Nice little museum. The exhibition on Iran was great, having travelled there a few years ago but not going to Teheran, it was the first time I got to see ancient Persian artifacts. The doll house is also a great experience and I am sure kids love to experience life in the 19th century. Be sure to be there on time, they close the doors at 17h and no seconds later.
Womderfull (temporary) exposition on Iran. The permanent collection has the famous "veenlijken", bodies preserved by being submerged in moorlands. The permanent collection is interesting for first timers and kids, but its small. This museum does have excellent temporary expositions.
Great museum. An older part with own and varying exhibitions and a new underground part with also varying exhibitions. We visited the exhibition on Iran which was splendid.
Beautiful museum. Great exhibition of very old Iranian art/craftsmanship.
Excellent museum. A great range of interesting exhibits. Not everything translated to English.
