Step back in time in the Old Dutch furnished house, admire the exhibitions and enjoy the beautiful herb garden. Texel's smallest museum is located in one of the oldest houses on the island. In the middle of Den Burg! In the former hospital from 1599 you step back in time. The Old Dutch interior takes you back to how people used to live. People slept in bedsteads, the water came from the pump, boiled on an open fire. Wealth was displayed with trinkets from distant lands. The cellar is stocked with supplies for the winter; everything was preserved. Behind the house is a small paradise: a beautiful herb garden. Sit on the bench and enjoy this green oasis in the sun. The Oudheidkamer is normally open from April 1 to October 31.
