Purchase of the Friends of the Mariniers Museum Foundation, bequest of former marine officer Frans Braggaar

Omhangen en volgen


‘Omhangen en volgen’ (put it on and follow me) is a colourful marines expression which basically means ‘follow me’ or, in more drill-like fashion: ‘on me, now!’. When you sign up as a new friend of the Marines Museum, you are helping the Friends Foundation make purchases and run its publications. However, your support is not just financial in nature. It is heart-warming to know that so many people hold the museum so dear.
