  • A lovely little museum on a boat. I took my daughter there, and she had a blast. The visit will be pretty short (it's just a house, after all), but please note that if you tend to suffer from sea-sickness, it'll still affect you.

  • Good place if you wanted to see the life on the boat, but actually nothing special. Nice to visit one time. But should me really interesting to go there with children

  • Can't say it's spectacular, but most important you will get an idea how people live in houseboats. On top of that lady on cashdesk will answer any possible question you have. Really deep knowledge of topic. Can't say it's place which you must visit, but those who interested in locals life will deep dive in atmosphere of life on the boat.

  • Nice place. They have tour guide in so many different language. Even my Estonian language They had. Wow.

  • Small and nice. People there are friendly and would be happy to show you how a boathouse looks from the inside
