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.
