With trains from Amsterdam central station every 30 minutes all day, this is well worth the trip and a full day. The museum is amazing with over 140 buildings!! Very interesting for kids and adults alike. Highlights: Kids can make their own skipping rope using an old rope twisting machine The steam engine at the laundry is a thing of... More

在朋友的推薦下,我造訪了這個距離Amsterdam Central Station要一個小時火車車程的地方。這絕對是一個值得花一天玩的地方,而且我建議週日造訪,會有比較多的街頭活動。 須德海博物館有戶外跟室內兩個部份,由於一開始就得知戶外非常有看頭,就直奔戶外。在這裡我用了Holland Pass的金卷,一般民眾費用要EURO17也絕對物超所值。 你可以選擇出了火車站徒步至入口處,或是從碼頭搭船,我建議去程用走的,體驗須德海碼頭滿滿都是船帆船梶的壯觀。回程再至三個煙囪處搭船,記得: 回程的第一個STOP就是火車站,由於船小姐講荷文,我們聽不懂而沒在對的地方下船。多花一點時間在其中一個有錢的中產家庭生活體驗,他有提供二選一的小測驗,借此可以了解當時的生活背景。 I visited Zuiderzee Museum because my friend highly recommended this museum which is 1 hour away from Amsterdam central by train. It's definitely our favorite museum in the Netherlands. It includes outdoor and indoor. You can either walk 20 mins or take ferry to the entrance of museum. I recommend that you walk... More

Starts with a pleasant boat trip (included in entrance fee) from the parking lot, or intermediate station next to Enhuizen railway station. Authentic buildings, living trades and features of the original Zuiderzee before the reclamation of Flevoland. Great activities for kids. Don't miss the delicious kippers fresh from the smokery, but beware of thieving seagulls!

The zuiderzee museum shows the Dutch life of 150 years ago at the villages around the Zuiderzee (currently Markermeer) and their struggle against the water. It is a small village with original old houses from various towns in the area, which were transported to this museumtown. You can see the old life, including the old school, how small the houses...

The way life used to be over 100 years ago. It's a living history where Dutch culture and ingenuity were reenacted as you walk through the village. It's not just an outdoor museum, an indoor museum is also included in the admission where you'll see impressive life size ships at it's finest! They will speak English to accommodate tourists, if...

It's hard to describe the Zuiderzee Museum as there are so many things to discover there. But if you want to have a grasp of what was living in the Netherlands during the last 200 years, then this is the place to visit: both adults and kids will spend a wonderful time. Take the time needed (at least 3 hours)... More

The Zuiderzee Museum was so impressive on my first visit, that four months later, when I was in the vicinity, I visited the Museum again, of course again claiming free entrance, armed with the Dutch annual museum pass. A large parking lot is laid out next to the main building, where you get the entrance tickets and get on the... More
