What to expect

Friesland has been an agricultural province for centuries with farmers working on the land and keeping livestock. Discover the history of farming and listen to inside stories of farmers. Experience the huge impact the agriculture had on the way of life, the culture, economy and land in Fryslân through paintings, tools, movies and interactive presentations.

Find out the innovations during the years, and the ever-changing methods used by farmers. The different crops they grew, and how the growth of different types of potatoes or 'pootaardappels' developed. In Fryslân (the province of Friesland) improved the breeding of cuttles the production of milk incredibly. This stimulated the development that is still typical for Friesland and served as an example for the world.

The museum houses different changing exhibitions during the year:

  • May-October - Exhibition 'Niet vergeten Frico' (don't forget Frico)

An exhibition dedicated to the history and development of the brand Frico, with thousands of different objects and images from almost all dairy companies in Friesland. The exhibition is combined with readings and (child)activities about dairy in the present days.
