The former VOC warehouse The Peperhuis is part of the inner museum of the Zuiderzeemuseum. It is the oldest building of the museum and has a special history. It was built in 1625, commissioned by a wealthy businessman. About 50 years later, the VOC took over and used it for the storage of spices, tea and textiles. After the loss of the VOC, the property was owned by several owners. In 1947 the Peperhuis was donated to the Zuiderzeemuseum
