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 info@willemkolffstichting.nl.

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.
Send an e-mail to info@willemkolffstichting.nl and inquire about the possibilities.


Author and biographer Herman Broers gives lectures on location on behalf of the Willem Kolff Foundation about Willem Kolff and the invention of the artificial kidney.
