Museum Buren & Oranje
Museum Buren & Oranje exists since 1988. It is located in the ancient and monumental town hall on the Markt in Buren. Why this museum? Although in Buren you will find a Royal Orphanage, a corn mill "The Prince of Orange" and hotel / restaurant "De Prins", in the Oranjestadje little of its rich history could be found. The Orange Museum meets this need, because Buren has 'old papers' with our royal family. In the Betuwe fortified town in 1551 Prince William of Orange married his first bride, the rich Anna van Buren-Egmond. Both were only eighteen years old. This first Dutch wedding concluded in the Netherlands, countess Anna made a princess and the prince became the richest nobleman of our Low Countries. Anna van Buren is not only the first, but also the only Dutch bride of our reigning Oranjehuis.
