Summer holiday fun > Sun 3 Sep 2017

Come to the Museum with the whole family during the summer holiday for a lovely day out. On warm days, enjoy the water fun offered by Waterworks and let the children dress up in a Volendam or Marken costume. Visit the different craft demonstrations and play some of the fun games. Make your own skipping rope and meet some of the 'residents' of the Outdoor Museum. Join a 1920s household for a meal or tuck into a fresh-smoked fish. Join a geography or handwriting lesson or make a wooden-shoe boat. Fat chance that you'll get bored on your day out! 


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!
