Stadsmuseum Almelo is a regional museum in Almelo, managed by the Stichting Museum voor Heemkunde Almelo, which was established on 8 January 1975. The museum is housed in the Rector's House, which was the Latin school in 1783, and the adjacent Heydapand. The objects in the museum's collection are about the history of Almelo and the surrounding area. The city museum strives to enthuse visitors about the history and future of the city. The museum therefore also gives a place to the new history of Almelo.
