Museums - dive into history
Brielle is a small town with a rich historic past. Much of that past is still visible, in the historic buildings in the town centre, for example, and in the ramparts and fortifications. Brielle has several museums where you can find out more about this interesting town's illustrious past.
There's a historic museum in Brielle that's located in the former town prison and weighing house, built by Maarten Cornelis Payese in 1623. The museum has several annexes just outside the town: the Stenen Baak lighthouse and - in Zwartewaal - the Fisheries Museum where you find out a little about the history of the fishing industry. Or check out the exhibition in the centuries-old Kruithuis on the Brielle ramparts, which tells you all about how Brielle residents throughout the centuries have commemorated the liberation from the Spanish on 1 April 1572.
