The Menkemaborg is a borg in the village of Uithuizen in Groningen in the Netherlands. Since 1927, the borg is a historic house museum.
Menkemaborg is an originally 14th-century, brick-built house, which was dramatically altered around 1700 but has since been barely changed. The Alberda family, the 18th-century occupants, commissioned artists to decorate the interior with impressive chimney-pieces carved with baroque ornaments, and paintings of mythological scenes.
