Unusual museum on a very Dutch topic. Amazing collection of memorabilia of Dutch Ice Skating going back over a hundred years, for three euros well worth a visit.

This was nice for a walk through. This museum is packed with everything concerned with ice-skating. You have to be a sport and/or speed-skating enthousiast to realy appreciate this fully stuffed set of rooms. Worth a visit when you are in this small city.
