Enkhuizen Things to Do: 89 reviews and 159 photos

  Small, yet very interesting to have a look inside
by Pavlik_NL

Originally this house belonged to a water administrative instantion (under the house is still a lock with which water from the old Zuiderzee could be stopped at high tides), but now-a-days it houses a very specific and funny museum. The museum has a huge collection of this rather typical (Dutch?) seamen's hobby and also shows exactly how it actually is done. In the facade one sees the coat of arms of Hoorn (a Horn), Medemblik (a wooden block) and Enkhuizen (the three herings). Besides these city signs also that of the region West Frisia and the Royal House of Orange.
