Loads of touritst, but not in this museum May 15, 2016
The Volendams Museum is a museum about the history of Volendam. It is located near the harbour.

The museum can be visited in groups and with a guide.

On display are clothing, interiors of shops and houses and other typical objects from Volendam. In the main room there is a part of a botter so you can see the interior of the stil seaworthy ships.

One room is specially dedicated to walls decorated with sigar bands. All walls are coverd with sigar bands. They are placed in shapes to show the Netherlands (at the time without Flevoland as that province wasn't created yet), the royal family, etc.

This museum is realy an eye opener for people who are not all to familiar with Volendam, of who haven't visited the village in ages.
