At the Zuiderzee Museum you will find everything about life in and around the former Zuiderzee. Dive into the multitude of stories and discover what life looked like back in the day. Walk back through time over the cobblestone streets of the outdoor museum. Here, over one hundred and forty authentic, historic buildings from around the former Zuiderzee create an entire village. Meet the residents of Urk, visit the pharmacy, or check out the steam laundry. Do you know how to knit a net or make a rope? Come and discover!
In the new exhibition, a Sea Full of Stories, in the indoor museum, residents from the Zuiderzee area from around 1900 talk about their daily life, clothing, houses and adventures. That, and about their eternal fight against the water.
