Welcome to Museum Veere

Jacques van Bijlevelt - SCHOTSE HUIZEN - 300dpi
Museum Veere is established in two beautiful historic buildings: The Scottish Houses along the quay and the monumental City Hall on the Market. Together they bring the stirring history of this small city of Veere to life. The unique 16th century statues that once adorned the façade of the City Hall are part of our collection and on display in our Statue Hall. The famous gilded goblet of Maximilian shines in the old council chamber.

IMG_0002Veere was once the centre of the profitable wool trade between Scotland and the Low Countries. After considerable effort the town won staple-rights on Scottish wool in 1541, meaning that the goods had to be made available for purchase there for a set time before being allowed to go on sale elsewhere. This important and profitable trade right encouraged Scottish merchants to establish themselves in Veere permanently.

Throughout the year we have changing exhibitions that cover different parts of the town’s history. For example, many artists resided and worked in Veere in the late 19th and early 20th century and we regularly display their work.

In our Museum Shop you can find books and unique souvenirs that will remind you of your visit to Veere.
