Smokkel van het vette goud - Canondagen 2024

Experience the 'Smuggling of the fat gold' during the Canon Days in the Tax & Customs Museum! On Saturday, May 25 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. we will take you back in time to the fascinating era of butter smuggling, an important key piece from the Canon of the Netherlands.

Immerse yourself in the story of butter smuggling on the first floor, where the museum teacher takes you past an inspiration table full of intriguing objects. From smuggling clogs to crow's feet, each item tells a special story from this exciting period. Young adventurers are encouraged to discover books such as 'Smuggle Children' and 'Het Pungelhuis', while we also present our exciting school program 'Caught'. Seize the opportunity to hold these objects in your hands and to examine them. Can you discover the smuggling trick?

Then visit the third floor and meet Leon Warnies. As a retired customs officer, he can tell you everything about the fascinating history of customs work. In the education room he shows contemporary customs finds while he runs his fascinating program 'Customs Consultation Hours'. Learn more about customs here and discover how this organization fights smuggling today.

End your visit tasty and cozy in our museum café, where on Saturday we will treat you to a delicious piece of fresh butter cake, completely in style with the theme! Enjoy this delicacy while talking about all the exciting discoveries of the day.
