People who run it seem friendly and proud. Exhibits are ok. Museum is small. Okay if in volendam but don’t make special effort to attend.

Not a very big museum, but very nice to visit for 1-2 hours and get a very good idea about how life was in a typical Dutch fishers village.

Whilst the museum is an attraction for visitors the town of fishing village Volendam is just as quaint. Lovely walks around small canals with interesting Dutch house and quaint architecture.
