Frisian Museum of Natural History


An interactive museum for the whole family to enjoy!

View the treasures that Captain Severein collected on his travels around the world. Feel like Tom Thumb next to the massive jaws of the blue whale. And see how the taxidermist works on a long-eared owl or kestrel in the open studio. For the little ones there is the dragon named Li-ming, who lives in the attic of the museum. At Darwin’s attic visitors meet with the theory of evolution. Darwin is central, but also his predecessors and the dangers to a broad interpretation of the theory are discussed. And how will the evolution continue in the future? 

Will you join us for a dive?
The UnderWaterSafari (for ages 4+) is a spectacular tour of the underwater world of the Netherlands. You can take a tour of the bottom of a ditch and lake and the Wadden Sea in a special vehicle. Drift along with the current and search for the Big Five: the seal, porpoise, catfish, otter and beaver.

The Natuurmuseum Fryslân has been awarded the title of the “Best Kid-proof Museum in Friesland” by the Museum Inspectors.
