The Falconry and Cigar-makers Museum consists of two collections.
The Falconry Museum gives an impression of falconry in the period from 1650 till today, this includes also the period in which royals and aristocrats entertained their guests with the "feather play".
The Cigar-makers Museum depicts the development of the making of cigars in Valkenswaard from 1865 to its downfall.
The link between falconry and cigar-making is the rich English falconer Richard Hamond, for a long time a resident in Valkenswaard. On his death in 1845 he left a heritage of 24,000 guilders to Jan van Best, who used this money in 1865 to start a cigar-making factory.
