Not a very big museum, but very nice to visit for 1-2 hours and get a very good idea about how life was in a typical Dutch fishers village.

Whilst the museum is an attraction for visitors the town of fishing village Volendam is just as quaint. Lovely walks around small canals with interesting Dutch house and quaint architecture.
