photoshoot and vr experience
Aug 2020 • Couples
we did a combination Vr experience and photoshoot.
The lady talked very enthousiastic about the history.The Vr experience it selfs was oke.The sound of the movie could be better.
Photoshoot was fun although nog one was wearing a mask beacuse of corona and they came cery very close towards you and all of the otter people.
I forgot to say anything about this.
But that was not oke

Fun & interesting

It is recommended to combine both the tour and the photography. The tour gives comprehensive information about the place and way of life of the Dutch at the turn of the last century. Traditional dress photography is just fun. Miriam the guide was charming and interesting.

Dress up time
Jul 2019 • Family
What a fun time we had on a saturday morning playing dress up. We were with a group of 8 people including 2 small children. The staff were polite and patient. I felt everything was really profession and fun at the same time. There were pleasant exchanges between our group and the staf which made it even more enjoyable.

It was an experience and we felt it was well worth it. We ordered 4 copies of one photo and also received by email all the photos that were taken. After the photographer took our photo she also took some photos with our phone so we could share immediately with each other/online.

good value, fun experience
I would recommend

Well worth visit
Jul 2019
Great village, picture perfect, easy to get to by local bus from city centre train station 20-30 min ride. Cheap cost allowed us to spend ample leisure time here to enjoy view and have a meal and drink whilst watching the bay.
Highlight of our stay in Amsterdam for 36 hours.

Great photo experience
May 2019 • Friends
I checked out a few photo places in this area, some offered similar outfits and themes, but this one felt more personal and upscale - for the same price! One of the other shops I stopped in had a sign stating no personal photos during the experience. Not so with Experience Volendam! They encourage you to take photos of the prep phase and even once dressed and ready. The costumes were a very nice quality. They have a few backdrops, but we were told only 1 option available because we had 3 in our group, but they allowed us to take our own photos at the other backdrop we liked. The staff were very friendly and spent time making sure everyone looked the part.

We didn't purchase the other part of the experience, with the 3d glasses, looked interesting though.

Friendly & fun
Oct 2018 • Couples
It can be very busy here so prepare to wait for a bit. The staff is really friendly and take the time to dress you up. The dressers also take the pictures and they are fun! They even take pictures with your phone if you want to and really take time for that.
Waiting for the picture can take a while. They also send it to your emailadress.
One of the things you should do in Volendam!
