The museum is a mix of modern design and old architecture offering an insight into the art and history of Walcheren.For me the historic tapistries were a highlight as well as the roman archeological finds from the Domburg area.

I didn't go inside the museum but the building is part of the Abbey of Our Lady. I do not know why there isn't a separate listing for it because it is certainly a "do not miss" site in Middleburg! The origins of the abbey go back to the 12th century!

This museum is packed with fascinating items and a visit is essential for a flavour of Middelburg. The huge tapestries of the Zeeland sea battles have recently been restored and now look absolutely stunning.

I don't know if I was disappointed just because I expected something different or if it really was just poorly done. We went straight to the "history" level and...there was no history. There were displays with various items that may or may not have been found locally. It was not explained...neither were the monkey heads (I presume) in one of... More

This modest museum in the beautifully restored abbey has some excellent yet modest displays of local costumes and contemporary clothing, wonderful restored historic tapestries and archeological artifacts. A 2 hours well spent on a Sunday afternoon

What an eclectic selection of exhibitions. We saw the Hand Werk exhibition where a clothing designer deconstructed the intricate working of the local Dutch clothing. There was also a WWII photography exhibition, and artifacts from the local area. The tapestry exhibition was wonderful too. We had a great visit. We highly recommend it.
