Zuiderzee Museum In Pictures

Every weekend I go to different places across Holland in search of Dutch heritage, culture and traditions.


I finally made it to Zuiderzeemuseum where I spent an amazing day with a bunch of great people. It is a place that will simply take your breath away and make you feel relaxed – definitely worth adding it to your bucket list.


Zuiderzeemuseum is a place with a rich history.


It revives the stories of people who once lived on the shores of the Zuiderzee.


Every visitor is able to experience everyday life around the Zuiderzee.


The Zuiderzee Museum is oriented toward the history, the current situation and the future of this area. It focuses upon the themes of water, crafts and communities.


The whole story is visualized in the Outdoor Museum with historical buildings, and in the Indoor Museum.

Pro tip: you can get your ticket in advance, as they tend to sell out.


The Museum ferry carries visitors across the IJsselmeer to the Outdoor Museum where everyone can walk through history.


The Indoor Museum is the treasure chamber of the Zuiderzee.


Temporary exhibitions display the rich collection of the Museum such as Journey around the Zuiderzee.


There is a great collection of objects and houses – the collection of modern and present-day expressions of art and culture of the Zuiderzee region.


You can see how the past and present blend together in the collections.


In short, discovering the Indoor and Outdoor Museum is a great experience!

    I love reading your posts about Holland. I don’t live there anymore, but when I go home to see my family I really look at the country through tourist’s eyes. This is one that will go on my list to do. Tourist in my own country. :-)

    Always love museums. You get to learn so much about culture without people staring at you when you’re looking at them, or having to butcher their language. History is also lots of fun to learn! Well, I guess it depends on who you are in that respect. :) Looks like you had fun!

    Taking their land back from the ocean in centuries past and making a successful go of it – these people are an inspiration to humankind … great post!
