Really presents the history in an excellent manner with a lot of exhibits, how the people lived and made a living, sometimes out of their homes, such as peeling shrimp and grocery store in the home. Evolution of coif,.
Interesting on what they made with cigar labels into mosiacs, a major attraction.

This small museum is very well presented with every aspect of the daily life of its citizens in the past. Apparently this is the only city in Holland with a Catholic majority and several groups of impersonated scenes of daily life prove it. All these scenes show how these citizens lived, worked, went to mass or had their orchestra. This museum is well worth a visit

A wonderful small museum presenting the history of the village. Traditional dress, religious object, replicas of fishing boats and old shops, it is all there. But the highlight is the cigar band house. There you can see the amazing mosaics made of over 11 million cigar bands. So do take a look before or after enjoying all the other things Volendam has to offer.

It's a fun (but small) museum. 
One thing I noticed was that there was somewhat an inconsistency in the type of dolls/mannequins used to display the traditional clothing.
Some were even quite creepy.
It's a nice museum to learn more about the history of Volendam.
Wouldn't recommend this to someone with pediophobia.

We have visited this friendly and charming little place on a weekday, so it was fairly quiet.
It gives you a really accurate and informative description of what life must have been I Volendam and the Netherlands in the past.
The cigar band collection is the most impressive I have ever seen! It is a true artistic display created without any paint, purely with cigar bands and imagination.
If you're in the area, definitely visit this place, it is so affordable, for 4€ for adults it is a real treat :-)

I went on a tour of this place and learned about how people lived in Volendam many years ago. They had information in English, so we were able to understand what we saw there. They had displays of life as it was during that time. Very nice museum.

Enjoy lifelike and authentic tableau of daily life in old Volendam. You would feel like being transported in a time capsule. It is worth the visit. Tour should last 30-45 minutes.
