Reviewed June 22, 2016.

This is a unique museum where you can learn about the history of witches in the 16th and 17th century, and the weigh test given to those accused of witchcraft. While visiting this museum, you can undergo the weigh test yourself. If you pass, you will receive a certificate as proof to your friends and family that you are not a witch. Currently, they are planning an application for nomination on the Unesco World Heritage List. Only the main floor with the original witch weights and gift shop is wheelchair accessible. The video and upstairs information is not accessible for wheelchairs, but you can have a staff member give you a brief summary. The weighing test on the original weights from 1482 may or may not be accessible depending on individual circumstances. The museum is best reached by car or taxi. Accessible Travel Netherlands can arrange a taxi for you if needed. If going by public transportation, Oudewater has no train station, but is reachable by bus from the larger surrounding cities. Be sure to call ahead to ensure all buses you will be traveling on are accessible.
