Enkhuizen and the Zuiderzee museum
When Enkhuizen became one of the six locations of the East Indies Company the town expanded with houses and storage buildings.
The outdoor museum, located just behind the old part of Enhuizen, gives a picture of the Zuiderzee villages in times gone by. They show the sober living conditions of the hard working population.
The indoor museum provides information about fishing villages such as Volendam, Marken, Hindeloopen and Enkhuizen, the struggle against the water, the North sea fishery for herring and the Zuiderzee fishery and a large collection of wooden boats.
