The fifth chapter Urban Jungle is to be seen in the art and cultural-historical Museum Dr8888.
Enclaves of green make the urban environment more liveable. From garden plots to parks, from growing your own food to a single house plant, we draw the landscape into the city. Artificial or not, it appeals to a deep desire.

The museum is located in a former Franciscan monastery, built in 1936, on the Museumplein in the centre of Drachten.
