This place is brilliant. People who are dressed up as if they lived many years ago. Wasn't sure if it's real or not. It certainly seemed real. Scottish caught herring smoked Dutch style as kippers were delicious.

This living museum brought to life the social history of the Zuiderzee over the past 400 years. Allow at least half a day to see everything and another half to visit the covered collection, perhaps including a walking tour of Enkhuizen. Well worth a visit!

We spent close to 3 hours wandering around the very interesting exhibits. We would strongly recommend particularly if you have young children. However there were plenty of visitors like ourselves who were there without any younger family members. Well worth a visit.

Since most of the buildings are from early 1900s (narrow hallways), and a number of them have steps up into them, many will not be wheelchair accessible, but they have enough going on outside of the buildings where that may... More
