House of stories Museum De Tiid tells about the special history and identity of this ancient region. In the rooms of the monumental town hall complex, the past comes to life in special collection presentations and remarkable key figures such as Titus Brandsma, Gysbert Japicx and Trijntje Hilarides. Dilemmas In the new permanent presentation, visitors are confronted with dilemmas relating to this shared history. How do contemporary South Africans look at their history? Was Grutte Pier a saviour or a robber? You will also learn all about one of the most beautiful town halls in the Netherlands and your visit will not be complete without a visit to the famous tower attic.

In 1971, Gauke and Gretha Bootsma started a traditional Hindeloopen painting business. When their private collection of old skates became too big for them to handle at home, they founded the Frisian Ice Skating Museum to merge their two passions. Since then, the museum has grown and is now home to the largest collection of ice skates in the world, alongside special exhibitions, dioramas, artworks, and archival material that tell the rich history of the Dutch connection to ice skating.
