The Story of Bergen

Historical Museum Het Sterkenhuis is located in the oldest farmhouse of Bergen. Near the entrance, a period room and a farmer’s kitchen of around 1900 can be admired, containing extraordinary silver, glass and antique jewellery. Besides a collection of beautiful topographical prints of the village, the museum also owns an amazing textile collection. Gems of Dutch local fashion, such as Barok gowns, Victorian corsets and elegant men’s clothing, bring Bergen’s history to life. Archaeological treasures from the stone age tell the stories of the earliest inhabitants of Bergen. There is also special attention for the infamous ‘Battle of Bergen’ of 1799. In addition, Museum Het Sterkenhuis presents a special exhibition every year. For 2023 we present: Van boer tot badgast - Het verhaal van Bergen. This exhibition is on show until 29 October 2023.
