Van Doesburg-Rinsemahouse: A Museum house in Drachten Theo Van Doesburg, the leader of the De Stijl movement, has left his mark on Drachten, most notably in the so-called Parrot District: a small neighbourhood of middle-class housing and a school building located in the center of Drachten. In this house people are introduced to the original exterior and interior dating from 1921, deducted from the original colour schemes designed by Theo Van Doesburg. This house will be serving as a museum home from march 2019 onwards and provides a good impression of the influence of De Stijl on both the exterior and interior of buildings.
Guided tours Every Friday (11.30 AM) and every Sunday (14.30 PM) there are guided tours from Museum Dr8888 to the Museum Residence. Reservations can be made by telephone: 0031 512515647.
