Fodor's Expert Review Zuiderzee Museum


One of the Netherlands' most complete outdoor museums comprises streets, neighborhoods, and harbors, along with 130 houses, shops, and workshops where the old crafts are still practiced. The children's island takes youngsters back to life in the former fishing village of Marken during the 1930s. Whether you approach the museum by the well-marked walking route from the station or follow the road signs, you'll come to embarkation points from which you are ferried by boat to the entrance, a romantic way to take a step back in time.
