you can always go to Germany, I went to Cologne (Rhineland). It's about 2.5 hr ICE train ride.

This past March, we took the train from Amsterdam Centraal to Enkhuizen. Just past the train station is a tourist office where you buy tickets to go to the Zuiderzee Folk Museum. You can board a ferry to take you to the outdoor museum, which is a village created from actual cottages and shops brought from other locales. There are craftsmen demonstrating the 'how-to's', such as making rope, carving wood, smoking fish, etc. It is a wonderful outing to do, and gives such a flavor of Dutch living in the past.
The train ride takes less than an hour. I don't have it handy what the entrance fees were, guessing $9-12 per person? On this web http://www.hollandmuseums.nl/ click on English, then All Museums, then search for Zuiderzee.
The town of Enkhuizen is also delightful, so save time for strolling through its shopping area.

Actually, Jeanne, I have topped my October trip report - it has descriptions of our day-trips from Amsterdam and Brussels.
It's called "Trip report: Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris and more...".
