  • Being on Alkmaar a few days, we decided to visit this living museum within 10 km outside. A bit surprised of the requested entry price (€17), we were pretty worried, but we have been reassured by the quality of the presentations. The Museum is dedicated to the very special agricultural traditions of this region or more than 15,000 small farms cultivated 100 years ago a multitude of plots of land reclaimed from water, very fertile but only accessible by boat. To sell their produce, farmers have set up a negative bidding system. It starts with a nice tour of typical fields of the time by boat (included in the visit, comments in Dutch, but summarized on form in french, German and English). Then there is a demonstration of bidding in the original room, presented in a very fun way. Vegetables are entered by boat and visitors can participate in the auction. First, to begin with, a simulation. Fortunately, because I would have been hard to ship to Schiphol the 65 kg of onions that I acquired by pressing a little too fast on my order! It was so funny the present Dutch! After that, real auction to buy real vegetables for a few euros. The rest of the visit is well commented on french audioguide (included), and an exhibition shows the life of farmers at the time. The tour is interesting also with children, with many visible domestic animals.

  • Carbon to agree to have visited, especially the relaxed cruise and auction auction was super interesting. Too bad (despite the may holidays and Sundays) there was no blacksmith or that the fish Smokehouse in company.

  • The earlier horticultural products of the farmland in the end on the dining table in house you can end up here. A very educational museum for both young and old. Children will best enjoy a real auction. The design of this auction is the basis for subsequent auctions for various other products. If you want you can also take a boat trip through this area known for its many islands.
