  • Very good Musem with attractive items, having a small screen with projector showing the archive of Dutch family relations and religious functions. I think it can be added with more flavours to be more attractive to the Tourists. People who maintain and manage are very smooth and courteous.
  • A tiny museum in Volendam which shows accurately local traditions, costumes and the history of the place. An enjoyable visit for adults and children. Really polite staff at the ticket office, which provide you a tour guide at the entrance. Valid with Iamsterdam city card!
  • It was small, but nice. I was impressed of the cigar bands art. Visiting a place without a visit to the museum as well? That's a no no :)
  • This place will be nice for museum enthusiasts. It is worth a visit if u have an Amsterdam card otherwise I won't recommend visiting this place by spending money
  • Fascinating small local folk museum. It features exhibits relating to local historic industries such as fishing. There are many mannequins in historical local dress in domestic scenes. There are also very large murals decorated with tens of thousands cigar bands; see pictures. Marvellous intricacy. There is a small shop for souvenirs and the staff are helpful
