A piece of Dutch history

The Zuiderzee Museum in Enkhuizen brings to life the stories of people who used to live around the Zuiderzee. See, hear, feel, taste and smell daily life around the Zuiderzee, before the Afsluitdijk turned the Zuiderzee into the IJsselmeer in 1932.

The Zuiderzee Museum focuses on the history, current affairs and future of the area. The themes of water, craft and communities are central. This story is made visible in the outdoor museum with historic buildings and the indoor museum with thematic exhibitions.

In the indoor museum Zee full of stories, visit the fascinating, interactive and completely renewed permanent Zuiderzee exhibition for everyone. In this exhibition, get to know both the former and current residents of the Zuiderzee region, who talk about their daily life, work, clothing, houses and leisure activities. About their customs and their parties then and now. And about their eternal struggle against the water and the construction of the dike that changed everything: the Afsluitdijk.
