    The Zuiderzee Museum... Costumes

    by sim1 Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The children can dress up in traditional costumes and walk around the museum like that all day long. These little girls looked so cute in their costumes. I have added an old picture so you can see how they used to dress in the old days. Same costume, completely different times.

    The museum was closed when I passed by here (early Saturday morning, way out of season!). Looks interesting.

    Zuiderzee Museum including some goats. The goats are just goats. The buildings are historical buildings that have been rebuilt on the museum grounds.

    De Drommedaris

    by OlafS Written Feb 13, 2004

    De Drommedaris is an old town gate, dating from 1540. It's a really impressive building, and perhaps the best-known symbol of the town. Inside is a cultural centre, with a bar.

    Leftover fortifications

    This is the big eye catcher in Enkhuizend. Its the Dromedaris, it was once part of the fortifications. From here you walk either into the old city center or out to the harbours.

    The South Sea was converted into the IJsselmeer Lake in 1932. In this open air museum that won many European prices you can see how the South Sea coast looked before the enclosure.
