Mata Hari, the myth and the girl

On October 14, 2017, one hundred years after her death, the Frisian Museum opens the largest Mata Hari exhibition to date. You get to know Margaretha Zelle, the girl behind the iconic Mata Hari, through her personal belongings, photographs, scrapbooks, letters, and military files. Join her on her journey from her birth place Leeuwarden to the Dutch East Indies, where fate stalks her. Experience her glorious rise in the Parisian dance theatres and discover the web of intrigue that ensnares her during the First World War.
