Love to see the history of the area all from a water point of view.

THis museum covers many aspects of life in Frysan, not just boats but skating, lifestyle and the day to day items important to these people.

This museum is about Friesland's history and culture (ships, ice skating etc.) I read Dutch so it was extra fun for me. My husband does not and he got a bit less out of it than I did. I thought the exhibits were very interesting. I especially liked when I learned about the different ways in which people from Friesland lived because my ancestors are from Sneek. The museum is both modern and historical (three buildings). There is a lovely store with interesting things to buy and very friendly ladies who work there. There is a seating area where you can have free drinks. Bathrooms are very clean. The town of Sneek is a delight to walk around in afterwards.

Great, renovated museum. It takes at least half a day to see and find out. Also the history of the way of living of Frisian people can be seen.

Very worthwhile museum with much more than just the history of ships and boats. It includes some of the history of Sneek, paintings, souvenirs that sailors brought back, and period rooms of how people in Sneek lived in the 19th century.

There is a lot of history in Friesland. This museum offers a great view of the history of Sneek and the shipping in the old days.
