The Largest Doll’s House in the Netherlands

An exciting exhibit for young and old alike
 

The Doll’s House takes you back to 18th-century Drenthe. This was a time when wigs were in fashion. There was no electricity. Carrier pigeons took care of communications and good manners were everything. A visit to this house is exciting for young and old alike: a historic discovery of our world as it was 250 years ago. This is an experience you’ll not soon forget. Each room is interesting in its own right, and there’s plenty of fun things to do. These are period rooms for modern times! This presentation was developed with generous support from the BankGiro Loterij and various families from the province of Drenthe.
 

Bringing dolls to life
 

The owner of the doll’s house, played by well-known Dutch actress Liz Snoijink, introduces you to her ‘dolls’: the distinguished Van Lier family and their staff. You can choose your favourite family member to take you on a fascinating multimedia tour of the house. Will it be master of the house Johannes Van Lier, his daughter Barbara, their cook Tallegien or one of the other inhabitants? Choose quickly, there’s so much that needs to be done! The rooms need dusting, the silverware needs polishing and the kitchen staff has to prepare a delicious festive dinner, because Governor Willem V is coming to visit. The choice is yours.
