The tobacco museum in Kampen was housed for years in the building at the Butter Market.

Unfortunately the building no longer require the security to receive groups of people.

The exhibition is to a large extent moved to the cigars factory Olifant. A large part of the collection is on display in one of the antique attics. When you are interseted to  view this collection feel free to ask. On special request de Eenhoorn will show this collection during one of it's tours.
