COME SPEND A DAY WITH THE DUTCH
With increasing concerns for the health of our guests, volunteers, vendors, participants and residents of Pella, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Tulip Time Festival. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this unprecedented health crisis.
The Historical Village and Vermeer Windmill are both closed to the public for now.
If you are in need of a Dutch costume, please call 641-628-4311 to be connected with a seamstress.
In 2020, the Boyhood Home of Wyatt Earp will be closed as part of a $2.5 million renovation and restoration campaign. The Scholte House will be closed until further notice as well. But don't worry, there's still plenty to see and do in the meantime!
You're invited to spend a day with the Dutch when you visit the Pella Historical Society and Museums. From displays of Pella's earliest years to unique gifts in our museum shop, you'll truly experience a touch of Holland on the prairie.
The story of 800 immigrants who founded a town on the prairie, the beauty of the costumes from their native Netherlands, the boyhood home of Wyatt Earp, thousands of tulips in an explosion of color, the tallest working windmill in the United States... You'll find it all here!
We promise that your day will be erg uitstekend!
