In the Prison Museum - which is located in one of the original buildings of the colony - you can learn all about the history of Veenhuizen. About the long journey, the special colonial landscape and the hard work that had to be done. Look around the house of a civil servant, look at the identification cards, on which you can see exactly who used to live in Veenhuizen.
There is plenty to do and experience for children in the Prison Museum and in the courtyard. Want to handcuff someone or hide in an old prison? Do you want to know what a prison cell looks like or an isolate cell? With us you can go anywhere! In addition, you can take a tour in a real old Criminal bus.
