Very interesting museum. Not big in size, but loaded with interesting stuff. And presented in a nice way. In an old, historical building that has its own history. A must see when you visit Naarden!

The owner Rene has collected weights and scales from all over the world and has them displayed in an historic building in Naarden Vesting - the Spanshuis - formerly a bakery for Napoleon's troops who occupied Naarden. Take the guided tour if you can.
