Kolff arrangements


Kolff's old office in the former City Hospital in Kampen has been restored and turned into a museum. The room can be visited by appointment (both individually and in a group). Inquire about the possibilities via willemkolffkampen@gmail.com 

Immerse yourself in one of the most exciting chapters in medical history. A young doctor in a small hospital, hidden from the German occupier, lays the foundation for one of the most important developments in medical science of the twentieth century: the introduction of artificial organs.

In the setting of a medieval city center you can immerse yourself in the fascinating life of a doctor, inventor and resistance member. You follow in the footsteps of an idealist who not only had successes but also made sacrifices in his personal struggle for one goal: to bring people on the brink of death back to a joyful and dignified existence.


Visit the Kolff Museum Room in combination with a historic city walk. Have a lecture given or have your meeting take place in this special place with an entertaining and inspiring story about this medical-technical pioneer. Everything is possible.
