Museum de Schotse Huizen

Museum de Schotse Huizen Review

This enchanting little museum stands beside two 16th-century buildings, facing the town's small inner harbor, that were once the offices and warehouses of Scottish wool merchants. Highly ornate, the buildings are named Het Lammetje (The Little Lamb) and De Struys (The Ostrich); you'll know which is which by studying the facade stones. Inside the museum is a collection of local costumes, porcelain, furniture (don't miss the Zeeland "star cabinet" inlaid with star shapes in ivory and wood), household items, and paintings. It's all delightfully old-world Dutch: the blue-and-white tiled fireplace, high ceilings, and exposed brickwork may make you feel like you've stepped into a Vermeer painting.
