With sixteen dolmen in the immediate vicinity, Borger in Drenthe is the dolmen capital of the Netherlands. So it makes a lot of sense that the Hunebedcentrum (Dolmen Center) can also be found here! Next to this center, you will find a large pebble garden and the largest dolmen of the Netherlands is a little further out.
On the edge of the Dwingelderveld is an enormous radio telescope which made radio astronomy possible, right next to the vast pastures. Very impressive!
In the brand new Drents Museum, there is plenty to see, do, and experience for a whole day of discovery. It is also perfect for children and young people, because the new Children's Museum, the Archeolab, and the Art Floor were specifically designed for this age group. Up to the age of 18, they also have free admission to the museum!
Crime and punishments is a tale as old as time. However, the way criminals are punished has changed a lot over the years. In the Prison Museum, you can discover everything about punishment from the past and that of modern times.
