N 53.134387843988 / E 6.4350859102134

Havezate Mensinge, located in Roden, is one of the most historic and most authentically furnished manor houses in the Netherlands. This makes it a unique museum.

The story of Havezate Mensinge goes back to the year 1381. In that year, the bishop of Utrecht lent the house to his fiefs: noblemen and noblewomen who looked after the bishop's interests in the north. For centuries, the Groningen noble Van Ewsum family lived in the house.

In 1728, the havezate received a renovation, giving it its current appearance. From 1818 to 1985, the Kymmell family lived in the house. It was then sold to the municipality, which turned it into a museum.

Once inside the museum, you take a step back in time. You will discover how people used to live in a Drenthe manor house. You will admire the authentic furniture, an extensive porcelain collection and various types of old clocks.

See the family coats of arms and portraits of former residents. Finally, Coenraad Kymmell himself was also a practiced painter. You can admire dozens of his paintings and pen drawings.
