The Society Oud-Monnickendam is committed to preserving, protecting and where possible enhancing the beauty of the city and landscape of Monnickendam.
In addition, "Oud Monnickendam" also carries out research into the history of the city, promotes the spread of historical knowledge by means of lectures and excursions and the publication of a Year Book.
The Society Oud-Monnickendam has an extensive collection of old photos, postcards, drawings and films. These are presented on the website.
• The City Guides of Monnickendam are part of the society. All year long they provide city walks through the old inner city of Monnickendam, where a lot is told about the historical background and anecdotes of the city.
• The management of historical ice barges is also part of the society. Currently, the Foundation for Ice Barges Gouwzee owns 25 ice barges with which you can actually sail when the Gouwzee freezes.
