(There am this good, the photo shows a museum.)

The Zuidderzeemuseum de Enkhuizen is a unique site by many reasons: first of all, one is the unique museum of Europe surrounded completely by water, and its collection of old objects is greatest of Holland. In addition, its museum outdoors - the Buitenmuseum- shows 130 constructions of Zuiderzee, a small territory located between two islands, inhabited at the beginning of century XX.

This part of the museum magnificently recreates the forms of life of long ago, with constructions that they include from classrooms to whole houses, equipped as if at the moment they were occupied. In addition, the entrance to the museum includes the ticket for a boat trip will take that us from return to continental Holland.

The herrings smoky leave their exquisite aroma floating in the park of the museum. There, a church - that during centuries remained to Give Oeven and was transferred to the museum stone by stone in 1968-, a port, a school - with the “dove? and the “palmeta? which the teachers used to punish the children, a cheese store and many other constructions of a century of antiquity hopes to be open pies.

Around all the park artistic groups appear continuously that unfold their talent in the diverse disciplines.

Near the market of the port, the fishermen used to amend their networks. To cross the margins of the channel is to be to each passage with stores of Dutch delights: meats, cheeses and jams recreate the spirit of the past century and wake up nostalgia… and the appetite! Smallest they can be amused disguising itself with the traditional clothes of Volendam or Marken.

In order to leave this wonderful place, he is recommendable to take the boat that takes towards the railway station of Enkhuizen, and whose cost is including in the entrance to the museum. To observe the work of the sailors and the captain, to the way of long ago, is the ideal conclusion for a visit in which the old customs with all the senses are reviven.
