Streekmuseum Reeuwijk

A visit to the Streekmuseum Reeuwijk is a must for anyone who wants to know more about the history of the Reeuwijk region.

The museum shows that the Reeuwijkse Plassen were created by peat extraction. A comprehensive picture of daily life in the countryside in ‘grandmother’s time’. Part of the Beunder collection is housed in the museum.

Regional Museum Reeuwijk is located in a former farm. The building, which dates from 1907, is still almost completely intact.

Many original peat farming tools are displayed in the museum, with photos showing their use. A very meticulously executed model in 1:10 scale clearly shows the process from dredging to fuel. How peat extraction went in practice at the time is made visible through a unique slide sound image (12 minutes).
