Volendams Museum - Review
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.

Volendams Museum, Volendam Reviews
Visited Volendam during my visit to Amsterdam. Nice little fishing village in the countryside. There is an entry fee to see the museum. It is right next to the visitor centre where you get all info and brochures about Volendam. The people in the museum aren't the friendly types.
SUPER! lovely working windmills, very beautiful scenery. Don't take any tours here, it's easy enough to get here by train, which cost a fraction and you can spend so much time here, easily 4,5 hours here, most tours give something like 45 minutes and the visit of just 1 windmill of the 4.
Worthwhile visiting. Very interesting. Give one an overall idea of Volendam and its people since earlier days.
Neat place. But would have preferred to grab some food or beer across the street. :)
Nice museum to see the various Dutch klederdracht! Also a bonus to see the greatest collection of cigar bands!! Interesting history. Well worth a visit.
