This small village museum was packed full of the fascinating history of the village. It took about an hour to go round, but £7.50 for a family ticket and free parking! I can highly recommend it.

This small museum is full of interesting information about the plague and its effects on Edam. Worth a visit if you are in the area or passing nearby. It is a cute museum and definitely worth a stop. Interesting for all ages.

Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. We allow dogs into the museum if they can be carried. Otherwise they can be tied up outside with a bowl of water.

Sorry but have no idea on this. As it`s staffed by volunteers, I would think that there is a good chance that it will be open, but please check with the venue before travelling.
