Mata Hari: The exhibition is structured like a film, with each room representing a scene from Margaretha Zelle‚Äôs life. The story begins with a flashback to her interrogation by the French detective Georges Ladoux, which led to her execution, and reaches its climax when the visitor encounters Zelle dancing as Mata Hari in the museum’s main gallery.

Unique are the soundscapes that are placed in each room. Due to the subtle volume and non intrusive aural atmosphere, visitors experience the soundscapes as they do experiencing a film sound track.
