Zuiderzee Museum Enkhuizen:
The Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen actually consists of two parts. An inside museum and an outside museum. The outdoor museum is a village that you can walk through. In this inside museum, you can view original and reconstructed buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. All kinds of items from that time are displayed in those buildings, such as clothing, maritime objects, and interactive exhibitions. In the outdoor museum, you can view authentic village buildings such as a windmill, a pharmacy, fisherman’s shop, and characteristic houses. Actors mimic life at that time. Among other things, they show you how to smoke eels, pay for fishing nets and wear the traditional costume of the region from earlier times. The outdoor museum is only open during the spring and summer months. This year the outdoor museum will be open from March 30th, 2019.
History of the Zuiderzee region:
The Zuiderzee ceased to exist in the 1930s and was renamed IJsselmeer by the closure of the Afsluitdijk with the Wadden Sea. In the Zuiderzee Museum, you will find everything from the time before the closure such as authentically restored ships
The Zuiderzee Museum regularly hosts interesting and educational exhibitions. At the moment there is an exhibition to be admired called “Beautiful together”. This is a photo exhibition about the social life around the former Zuiderzee.
