Overview
More
At the harbour of Marken you will find a ‘small museum house’. It’s designed as a old original House in Marken. Here you can see the period furniture and decor and you can see how the people from Marken lived in the early days. This tiny house is exactly furnished as how a Marken fishing family lived there until about 1932. The walls of the house are covered with colorful signs and prints.

This tiny one room house is located opposite the boarding location of the ferry to Volendam and acts like a little museum. Entrance is free. Clearly visible is the authentic color scheme of typical blue and yellow. This is where the fishermen and their wives...More

A very small typical house of Marken that everyone should visit. A polite lady described to us all the details that a Marken family lived there and raised their family. I was impressed by the tiny room they had to live comparing the houses we...More

We nearly missed this place on our way back to the ferry but noticed it in passing and had a look inside. Entrance is free and it is set up as a traditional Marken house. They have clothing and various other artefacts, it is only...More
