Day trip: Zuiderzeemuseum

A few houses at the Zuiderzeemuseum

Vacation is over, I am back to work and I can look back on a couple of wonderful weeks with lots of day trips and visits to the beach. One of the day trips was a visit to the outdoor Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen. This museum consists of about 140 original old houses (and a few copies) from villages around the former Zuiderzee. It is divided in 5 neighborhoods constructed around a central village, built according to situations of original villages. You can see the interior of some of these houses, shops and workplaces, people in old folk costume walk around and explain about daily life in older times. Also, the museum offers lots of activities for children.
