Exhibition: 75 years Swimming Pool Waarland12 April 2022
Another pride of Waarland is the Waarland Swimming Pool. This beautiful outdoor swimming pool with still a beautiful natural pool with a beautiful chlorine bath also exists this year no less than 75 years. And of course we at Molenhuijs Waarland wanted to pay attention to that, because where do you still find something like this these days?
The 75-year history has been carefully portrayed on the basis of five panels, composed with a sense of nostalgia. Viewing these panels will undoubtedly bring back great memories for many!
Come and see!

Exhibition: You won’t believe your eyes…!12 March 2020
The exhibition ‘You won’t believe your eyes..’ features various works by Naald Kunstenares with a big N and a big K: Nelleke Dekker. You can admire a number of beautifully embroidered works of art based on optical illusions, Op art and other abstract arts. In plain language: these are works of art that, when you look at them, keep moving….!
From left to right, from bottom to top the embroidered lines are constantly changing so that you ‘don’t believe your eyes.’
(old) Waarlandse Nelleke was inspired to embroider in 2013 when she visited the biennial international art manifestation in Venice during a holiday.
In one of the many rooms there were 2 works of art, which she estimated from a distance to be embroideries (there was also a lot of textile handicraft art on display). However, it turned out to be graphic work.
She was disappointed about that and decided on the spot that she would embroider it herself. She took pictures of the 2 works of art, put them on the computer at home and figured out how to embroider the designs. This became the beginning of her embroidery passion. She has now made 23 pieces of embroidery in 9 years. Her most fascinating works now hang in the Molenhuijs Waarland museum so that everyone can enjoy her passion. A real recommendation that you should not miss!
