“Another very good museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

This is another example of a first class museum in The Netherlands. I visited in January and unfortunately was unable to see the large outside museum. It's closed in the winter and understandably so. However, I was not disappointed by the inside museum. Many very good displays and exhibits telling the local stories and lives of the local people. Friendly staff. Being the off season I had the whole museum to myself. Short train trip from Amsterdam. Then a 10 minute walk from the train station. Worth the effort. I plan on going back in the summer (and fight the crowds) to see the large outdoor section.

“must see, must do when in Enkhuizen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

an open air museum with lots of activities well worth visiting. To describe it I quote the reaction one of our young guests when we left the Zuiderzeemuseum after a very lively afternoon. He said: " You told me we were going to a museum. Are we still going there?"

“Step back in recent history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

A nice mix of viewing, demonstrations, activities and role-play. Everything together makes you experience life at the beginning of the 20th century around the Zuiderzee.

“A must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I think the Zuiderzeemuseum is a definite must see. But... not when the Buitenmuseum part of it is closed. The Binnenmuseum is nice and worth the trouble when one is in the neighbourhood.
But it is not as awesome as the outside part.There is something in it for everyone. Invigorating in the spring, nice in the summer and with a certain dreamlike quality when you are here on a autumnal day.
