About Ons Limburgs Museum

Podium for culture-makers, platform for stories

Homepage Square A kopie

Everyone is a culture-maker. Including you!

Limburg is full of stories – stories that we tell and share with each other. Because we are part of something bigger: Limburg culture. Whether you were born and raised here in the province or elsewhere. And we all create this culture, every day. Including you!

For example, when you celebrate centuries-old traditions or create new ones, when you speak, sing, or write in a Limburgish dialect, and when you recount your own memories or listen to those of others.

A meeting place for stories collects, archives, and preserves the stories of the people of Limburg. Personal experiences that bring together past, present, and future. These stories are presented on this platform alongside objects from collections and archives.

Here they are given context. They bring the rich culture of our province to life – for you and for generations to come. Because culture is what shapes us, stimulates us, makes us think.

At Ons Limburgs Museum, you will be immersed in stories that never cease to surprise and inspire: from podcasts to collections, from the past to the present, and from Eijsden to Mookerheide heath.

The Limburgs Museum is an initiative of the Limburgs Museum. The Limburgs Museum has an interactive programme full of exhibitions, events, and stories.

You can discover this programme in the museum in Venlo, at inspiring locations throughout the province, and online. At, the stories of Limburg are available to everyone – anytime, anywhere. This is where we are building the museum of the future, together. The Limburgs Museum is ours and for everyone.

Ons Limburgs Museum starts with stories of the Limburger. With your story!
