A museum in Aalsmeer dedicated to flowers, a living room decorated with pieces from the Mokum collection, a national monument with a loft full of children’s drawings and a cultural café with activities for every culture lover. When flowers are not in bloom in the winter months and the water is too cold for water activities, Aalsmeer is dominated by art and culture in its museums and cultural centres.
