Drents Museum (DM), NL

The Drents Museum is located in Assen, the Netherlands. It was founded in 1854 as the Provincial Museum of Drents Antiquities. After major renovations and the addition of a new exhibition wing designed by architect Erick van Egeraat, the museum reopened on November 16, 2011.
The museum has a large collection of prehistoric artefacts from the province of Drenthe. This includes e.g. bog bodies such as the Yde Girl, finds from the Funnelbeaker culture, and the oldest recovered canoe in the world, the Pesse canoe (which dates between 8200 and 7600 BC).
An annex building contains period rooms demonstrating the lifestyle of well-to-do Drenthe families from various time periods.
The museum holds a collection of contemporary realistic art with artists such as Henk Helmantel and Matthijs Röling.
There is also a collection of Dutch Art and Applied Art 1885-1935 with work by Vincent van Gogh, Jan Eisenloeffel, Chris Lebeau, Jan Toorop and Jan Sluijters.
