Fascinating
Jul 2020 • Couples
Despite some of the lack of information about what certain objects were and why people slept in cupboards this place is a must see in any trip to the north of the country. It gives a genuine insight into how hard life must have been for the people here. It's well presented and gives you many occasions to pause and reflect.

Worth the trip to the end of the world
Jun 2020 • Couples
Moddergat is not really the end of the world, but that seems to be the case when you reach the "Waddenzee" dike after driving along narrow roads and look in infinity over the Waddenzee. The museum is situated right there at the road along the dike and consists of a number of historic fishermen houses, restored with loving care. The museum tells the story of the history of the fishermen and their families, including the terrible disaster with the storm in 1887. This museum touched the heartstrings and I recommend it highly. Free parking across the street. Entrance for a fee, free entrance with the annual Dutch Museum Pass. In this period of corona virus restrictions, an on line reservation should be made.

At the end of the world a museum with a soul can be found
Mar 2016 • Couples
It is not really at the end of the world, but it seems that way; the old fishing village of Moddergat lies in the extreme north of the province Friesland rubbing against the heavy sea dike, protecting the Frisian land against the Waddenzee. The museum "It Fiskershuske" (Frisian for "fisherman house") is situated in a number of heritage fisherman's houses. Free parking is available on a small parking area or along the road. Entrance to the museum is free with the annual Dutch Museum Pass. Moddergat was a fishing village and most of the people of Moddergat earned their living in the fishing trade. In 1887 a gale wiped out most of the fishing fleet and 83 fishermen drowned. The museum is dedicated to the history of the fishing village and the life of the families. Start with the presentation of a slide show to get an image of the life in Moddergat in the past centuries. Several houses are furnished as they were at the start of last century. Interesting is "Klaske's huske" which present the life of Klaske van der Lei, living in Moddergat in the last century. The jewel of the museum is the actual "Fiskershuske" which will be unlocked for you by someone of the museum staff. What makes the museum so special and worth the trip is the loving care which radiates from every exhibit and detail and the soul of the fishing village with the good times and bad times, which has been embedded somehow in this museum.

Nice, down-to-earth museum that gives you an idea on how it must have been to be a fisher or fishers wive more then 100 years ago.
