About the local museum Lemster Fiifgea

The largest and most important part of the collection is the art ceramic collection of the former ceramic factory of Cornelis Steenstra in Lemster. This pottery is decorated in the so-called Frisian notch-cutting technique. You will also find objects from former fishing and shipping on the Zuiderzee, from peat extraction and from former daily life in Lemmer. There is also a large collection of photos of all the villages in Lemsterland and changing exhibitions throughout the year.
