I Couldn't Think Of A Good Title So I Went With This

by - September 20, 2013

Last week I went to Het Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen. The museum is built around the idea to preserve the "fishing culture" that lived there at the end of the 19th and beginning 20th century. They've literally moved houses as a whole from all over the country to get a pure image of the different fortresses around that time. Though, to be honest, it's very alike modern villages as Volendam... but then without the moderness of it. You can get exactly the same idea or atmosphere from real villages without them asking you to pay entree. So that was a bit disappointing.

But don't get me wrong, we had loads of fun hanging around the museum. There were actors recreating scenes that could've happened in the day-to-day life back then. They were AMAZING. Just rambling about things we have no clue off.

Besides a museumpark, there's also an "actual" museum. Unfortunately we had to run around like maniacs through it, because they were about to close for a wedding. Oh yes, I've witnessed three weddings that day. 

And that's about it. The train journey was long and boring and it rained all day, so it wasn't that perfect to be outside for a long time. But I already had a cold, so... yeah.
