Maastricht has a rich history that goes back a long way and covers many interesting periods. So it is not surprising that Maastricht now has a new museum that presents this history and the stories of the city: from prehistoric times to the days of the Romans, and from the golden Middle Ages to the modern day. There are stories about Maastricht as a fortified city, industrial city and European city, and stories about the people of Maastricht.
On this guided tour, Wim Hupperetz will talk about the creation of the Maastricht Museum, its collections and their provenances, and its plans for the future. He will also show you the main themes of the city’s history, including the exhibition ‘Maastricht 1673 – the Sun King conquers the city’. The guided tour takes one hour.
