Fodor's Review

To the left and right of the town's famed 16th-century bell tower, the Waterlandsmuseum de Speeltoren is housed in two charming historic buildings. You can see exhibitions on the history of Monnickendam (and neighboring villages), on the Waterland landscape, shows of contemporary art, plus a display of a noted collection of decorative blue-and-white tiles and majolica. And, for the first time, it is possible to see how the carillon of the Speeltoren (the oldest in the world) works, from the inside. You can also inquire here about walking tours, as almost every building in town has an interesting history (one is hallowed as a hiding place for Jews during World War II).
