  • I visited this small museum 04/08 Friday during a tour around Amsterdam. Admission fee (€3, we included already in service) but time well spent to observe a slice of life of the small Dutch town through its reconstruction in 5 rooms (main, of the fishing vessel, fishery, the old town and the cigar bands). A special mention deserves the Hall of cigar bands. This is the result of a talented resident of Volendam that, since 1947, amassed 11 million of cigar bands in a unique collection of mosaics and ornaments representing the world famous buildings, artworks, coats of arms of the provinces, windmills and other symbols. Only this room deserves a museum except for cigar enthusiasts, like myself. To see!

  • Totally dispensable. Sorry for the people who work there, but we found it very cumbersome. We went because we had been in the organized tour.

  • Excellent example of a local museum. Told the story of their local area - now I know who they were and the heritage of the area. Loved it!
  • Take time to look round the exhibition of fishing village life. The film show is fascinating.
  • Lovely little museum that you can visit in less than 30 min. Has very interesting displays.
  • Strange little place. Good information. Worth a stop
  • Beautiful collection but it's a small museum. Worth a visit.
