As a city museum, Museum Flehite tells the history of the city through objects and paintings. For example, the story of city carpenter Leendert Nicasiusz, who managed to contain the fire in the Tower of Our Lady in 1651. An eye-catcher is a city chest from the 15th century. The chest was made from a single piece of wood and fitted with nine locks. In it, among other things, were kept the proceeds of fines and the silver seal of the city. To prevent anyone from seizing the chest, the keys to the chest were kept by various notables.

Museum Flehite of course tells the story of the Miracle of Amersfoort, of the statue of Mary that worked miracles for centuries and made the city a place of pilgrimage and of Johan van Oldenbarnevelt, the statesman who had an important role, in the genesis of today's Netherlands.
