  • The museum aspect is wonderful. Where else would you see wooden shoes for horses?! It is a pity that the very interesting demonstration of how the shoes are made only runs when a bus tour shows up. In the past when I visited it wasn't like that.
  • A kind of museum cum special wooden shoe shop, known as clogs. Must visit. Surprisingly comfortable wooden shoe with variety of designs to choose from. There is a demo once a good crowd gets together! The demo is about how these traditional shoes are made out of wood. The machine made decades ago still work! A complete wooden shoe is made right in front of you, along with explanations of how it is dried etc. They explain well the advantages of such shoes. Some demo pieces are up for grabs, for 2€, for example. The demo starts from cutting wood, carving the outer shape, then ends with carving the inner side. Drying, polishing, painting is just explained as they take time. Demo lasts for about 10 to 15 minutes and is free. Some souvenirs is available too, including wooden tulips. Recommended place.
