The Dutch Costume Museum shows everyone who is interested in folklore the explosion of colors, combinations and designs, reflecting the history of the Dutch folk costumes and the stories and related practices. This way these stories will not be forgotten in a time when folk costumes are gradually vanishing from our streets. The museum is in a 17th century old canal house in the centre of Amsterdam.
The museum has a unique shop with handmade presents made by the original folk factory. It is open for the public all day from 10am until 6pm.
In the photo studio you can have the photographer take a photo of you in Dutch folk costume with your family or friends. It makes a great souvenir of a nice visit to Amsterdam to bring back home (own expense).
