We visited the place and we loved it. You can find a lot about Goethoorn just visiting this place. You go back in history to see how the people of Giethoorn lived. There is also a movie running continuously. Worth visiting

This little museum is right on the walking path along the canal. It shows the history of how people lived in the area. It is not big and doesn't take much time.
