Museumcafé met historie

En een gezellig terras

After your visit to the museum you can enjoy a drink in The Túnkeamer: the museum café in the beautiful garden room of former Douwe Egberts owner De Jong. There you can smell and taste the hot drinks of the Jouster world brand - and of course something tasty to go with it. The café and terrace can also be visited without a ticket.

What visitors say

"What a nice museum! I don't like museums much myself, But this one was really nice. Very nicely set up, And a very clear walking route so you didn't miss anything."

Linda, via Google Reviews

"Large museum consisting of several parts. 1 walking route from inside to outside. Actually small village. Interactive."

The 'coffee artwork'

From Klaas Gubbels

Het 6 meter hoge aromarode kunstwerk ‘Kaskade’ heeft in 2020 een permanente plek gekregen in het park bij Museum Joure. Een echte eye-catcher.
