Let's go in

You have seen enough from the inside of the building now. Let's enter the Old City hall.

The building is used for weddings (small weddings though) and it is a museum. It is not a very impressive museum, for various reasons there are not so many artefacts of history.
Woerden was founded by the Romans as a Castellum at the Northern frontier of the Roman Empire. They build a fortress with some houses of which one of stones. Now a days brass lines in the centre indicate where the Roman Castellum walls used to be. The site of that Castellum is the present day centre of the city.
