Vollendam nl - Volendam information

FAMOUS VOLENDAM COSTUME it's not surprising that the local Volendam style of dress has become representative of Dutch national costume. From the large collection of costumes, visitors receive a clear impression of the various clothes worn by infants, boys and girls, and men and women on weekdays, Sundays, high days, and on days of celebration or of sorrow. The unique collection of paintings in the main hall contributes to the vivid picture of life in the old days, and is weIl worth seeing.

FISHING ROOM

In the fishing room a great number of utensils, materials, and tools related to fishing, have been assembled. In addition, an interesting collection of model ships {including the Volendam 'quack'} may be inspected, together with the former shipyard of Pieter Spaander, his workshop  and his house on the dyke in the southern part of the harbour.
