Established in 1937 as a cultural organization for collecting the early Dutch immigrant story, the Holland Museum transformed in the early 1990s to working toward an inclusive community story. The Holland Museum strives to achieve its mission and goals through programs, events, exhibits and community engagement. Through our community partnerships, we can connect cultures, communities and programming to enhance a visitor’s experience.

Holland Museum preserves Holland’s history in three distinct properties: the Museum, Cappon House and Settlers House. The Museum, a repurposed Post Office building from 1914, displays Holland history, Dutch art, and temporary exhibits. The Italianate Cappon House, built in 1874, was the home to Isaac Cappon, Holland’s first mayor and local tanner. In stark comparison, the Settlers House, five houses up the street, was built in 1867 by an Irish ship carpenter and represents a working-class family home.

  • It is an interesting museum. The building is small enough to enjoy all the exhibits in a couple of hours. Of course the focus of the museum is Dutch. There is also an area for smaller kids to color and do other kid things. There I a beautiful park across the street from the museum. As you can expect from the city, the flower displays in this park are awesome.
  • Great little museum. Collection includes original Dutch masters. How cool is that!
