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 - Write a Review

  • Interesting museum and art gallery. When I visited there was an exhibition of the Liao dynasty from Mongolia and art by Kunst. I enjoyed the archaeological exhibition and the detailed reproduction of a wealthy Dutch house from the 1700s. The cafe is good too. There was an outside area and comfortable settings inside. All the museum's staff whom I encountered were very helpful.

  • A good place to stay long and short periods and If the art doesn't suit you The unique architecture of the building probably will

  • Went to the newest exhibition. It was pretty interesting. Also the "older" part of the museum is really nice! Definetly recommend this museum!

  • An excellent regional museum, very well curated. There are special exhibitions, a key collection of prehistoric finds from the region and a basement to first floor of reproduction rooms from the 17th / 18th century - which is worth s visit on its own.

  • Very nice museum, a great child tour thru the puppet-show
