Discover Piet Hein at the Old Church in Delft

As a proud Dutchmen and “Delftenaar” I’m very excited about the Piet Hein exhibition in the Old Church of Delft. For me as a child, his story was one of the most memorable bits of history I learned about in class.

As this is a temporary exhibition don’t wait too long and go explore the captivating story of Piet Hein, the renowned Dutch admiral, at the Old Church in Delft. This unique exhibition sheds light on both his remarkable life and modern forms of slavery.

Piet Hein made history through his exploits as a naval commander. Best known for his audacious capture of the Spanish treasure fleet in 1628, Hein’s legacy reverberates through the annals of Dutch maritime history.
