Palingpop is a very specific sound of pop music developed almost exclusively by Volendam artists. In this museum, above a rather excellent restaurant, is are roomfuls of memorabilia in tribute of the creators who popularized the genre at home and abroad. It explores 100 years of musical history through artefacts, instruments, awards, records, and photographs. The warmly lit exhibit has every wall covered with something or the other; musical paraphernalia hangs off the rafters.
Just in case you were wondering, the restaurant serves famous smoked eel. If you're eating here, they might give you a tour of the eel smokehouse. Outside the restaurant museum is a lovely dining terrace.. There is an outdoor exhibit of sculptures by Rob Cerneus on the beach beyond.
