Het Zuiderzeemuseum

Enkhuizen’s Zuiderzeemuseum tells the stories of the people who once made the shores of the Zuiderzee their home. As you wander among the exhibits you can practically see, hear, taste and smell everyday life around the Zuiderzee as it was before the major Afsluitdijk dam transformed the sea into the IJsselmeer in 1932. Focusing on the themes of water, crafts and communities, historic buildings, ever-changing exhibitions and fascinating ephemera from the past make this a day trip from Amsterdam that won’t disappoint.
