Cochius Excursion (glass in Leerdam)

Under the visionary leadership of its Director P.M. Cochius, the glass factory in Leerdam became world famous at the beginning of the 20th century. Cochius asked well-known artists and architects to design glassware that would appeal to a wide public. Because of his theosophical convictions, he felt responsible for the welfare of his employees: a sort of Dutch Henry Ford. Cochius has left his traces in Leerdam.

You will see glass artwork from the time and more recent objects in the Cochius tradition. The history of the city will also be addressed with a glimpse of the city gates, the Court of Ms. Van Aerden, the relationship with the House of Orange and the visit of Napoleon.
