Regional museum Veldzicht
Streekmuseum Veldzicht is housed in a farm dating from 1864, where Noordwijk’s past is shown in three areas:
- In the 18th and 19th centuries, Noordwijk developed into the most important herb centre in the Netherlands. The herbs were mainly traded in Amsterdam and used for medicinal purposes.
- After the cultivation of herbs, around 1850, flower bulb cultivation began in Noordwijk. At the end of the 19th century, around 250 flower bulb growers were active here, who together planted 252 hectares with tulips, daffodils and gladioli, among other things.
- Cattle farmers kept an old Dutch breed of cows, called blister heads.
The summerhouse with stables of the Veldzicht farm is furnished with an exhibition on the history of Noordwijk Binnen. Surrounding the museum are three historic gardens, a grove and two ponds.
