    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.
