Museum De Waag

Semi-permanent setup

Deventer History

Museum De Waag is a good place to start getting to know Deventer. The museum showcases the rich history of this market town, fortified stronghold and industrial centre through the most famous artefacts from their urban collection.

The collection of Museum De Waag contains a rich overview of the finest objects from the long urban history of Deventer.


In this semi-permanent exhibition setup, the collection and history of the city are shown through impressive storylines.

Discover the evolution and development of Deventer into a Hanseatic city, the markets, the crafts such as cakebakers and silversmiths and the emerging (early) industry and urban expansions.
