Housed in two medieval buildings, the first part of this interesting twin museum traces the rich history of Groningen's shipping industry, through models, instruments, charts, paintings, and more. There's a fine section on Groningen's medieval Hanseatic trading period. Smokers and maybe even nonsmokers can revel in the tobacco museum's collection, which covers Holland's long involvement with the tobacco trade.
