About Het Nederlands Vestingmuseum

The Dutch Fortress Museum is a place where you can touch history. The museum is located at the Turfpoort bastion in Naarden-Vesting, the best-preserved fortified city in the Netherlands and even unique in Europe due to its star shape with double walls and canals. In the outdoor area of this 17th-century heritage location, a collection of historic cannons is on display and you can walk around in a park-like environment. In four casemates you will learn the importance of forts and fortresses for the Netherlands based on exciting exhibits.
