The park, partly designed by G.A. Blum and L.P. Redbeard, laid out in an English landscape style. The remains of the formal Baroque construction have been preserved, such as the characteristic central axis. The treasure house on which the restaurant is located is located on the forecourt. Opposite is the coach house, which houses the museum shop and the exhibition rooms. In the orangery you will find a playful presentation about the development of the park, from the Ice Age to the present. There are 17th and 18th century sandstone garden ornaments in the park. The borg was founded in the Middle Ages as a stone house and grew into an impressive building with influential residents. The last residents, the Thomassen à Thuessink van der Hoop van Slochteren family, sold the deposit to the Gerrit van Houten Foundation in 1972. After restoration it became the Fraeylemaborg museum. The rooms show the image of time up to the middle of the 20th century, the last phase of private occupation. The Grote Zaal is used for concerts and receptions, while the Kleine Zaal is used as a wedding hall.
