In 1612 Maria van Nassau, daughter of William of Orange, ordered an orphanage to be built in Buren. The Marechaussee Museum has been located in this historic building since 1972. This building illustrates the link between the House of Orange, Oranjestad Buren, the old orphanage and the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee.
