Three Museums Tell The Story of Holland's Settlement
Holland, Michigan's three museums - the Holland Museum, the Cappon House Museum, and the Settlers House Museum - are located within a few city blocks of each other.
The Holland Museum features permanent exhibits on Holland's history "from settlement to city" and over 400 years of Dutch History in our Dutch Galleries. On its lower level, the Archives and Research Library houses the museum's collection of books, papers and photographs related to Holland's history.
The Cappon and Settlers Houses, a few blocks to the West, enhance the story of Holland's early settlers with the beautifully preserved and restored living environments of a common worker's family and that of Holland's first mayor.
The Holland Museum is an AAM accredited museum.
