Holland, Michigan's three museums - the Holland Museum, the Cappon House Museum, and the Settlers House Museum - are located within a few city blocks of each other. The Holland Museum features permanent exhibits on Holland's history "from settlement to city" and over 400 years of Dutch History in our Dutch Galleries. The Cappon and Settlers Houses, a few blocks to the West, enhance the story of Holland's early settlers with the beautifully preserved and restored living environments of a common worker's family and that of Holland's first mayor.
By collecting, preserving and communicating what has been, the Holland Historical Trust focuses the power of the past to shape the future. Its educational facilities and collections are representative of a diverse heritage and are accessible to all. Holland Museum was first known as The Netherlands Museum and was in the now Bed and Breakfast on the southeast corner of Centennial Park. the Cappon House was bought in 1980 and opened to the public in 1982. Renovations are still ongoing. The Museum moved to the present building ( the former post office) in 1992.
