Every visiting tourist is after a while struck by a curious question - why is Volendam so famous? For all purposes and intents, it looks like any regular port town, albeit a pretty one. This museum, while exploring the evolution of Volendam into a modern town in the late 19th and early 20th century, answers that question.
There is a wonderful exhibit of Volendam art - drawings, sculptures, ceramics, photographs and postcards. There is a magnificent collection of paintings of the city by a variety of artists. Recreated rooms from another era showcase an astonishing level of detail. In another area, you'll find displays of national costumes and ornaments. The fishing exhibit also has models of boats. But everyone's favourite tends to be the cigar house, a cottage with an interior patterned with 11 million cigar bands, a unique mosaic.

Excellent example of a local museum. Told the story of their local area - now I know who they were and the heritage of the area. Loved it!
Take time to look round the exhibition of fishing village life. The film show is fascinating.
Lovely little museum that you can visit in less than 30 min. Has very interesting displays.
Strange little place. Good information. Worth a stop
Beautiful collection but it's a small museum. Worth a visit.
