On Saturday 28 October the Zuiderzee Museum will once again organize the Evening in the Outdoor Museum, which will be illuminated with more than 1000 oil lamps. All houses will be open, demonstrations of different crafts are taking pace and visitors can go for an atmospheric tour on the barge along the canals. Children get a free Chinese lantern (while supplies last) and there will be musical performances. True to tradition the evening will be closed with a smashing fireworks display.
The Zuiderzee Museum aims to keep crafts alive and this season they receive even more attention within the context of the central theme Handmade. In the Outdoor Museum, visit the workshops of the fish smoker, sailmaker, ropemaker, netmaker, smith, cooper, stoker and basket weaver. Find out how it is that even today their craftsmanship is of great value and get to work on these trades yourself! In a pavilion designed especially for this year, you can set to work with typical Zuiderzee materials. Discover your creative talents and artisanal qualities. A great experience!
