  • The Zaans Museum and the experience are 2 museums in one. You walk through from one of the other museums. The Zaans museum is very nice about products and activities from the region. With a special cupboard you get to hear a short story in all subjects. For children this is not very suitable, because they probably do not have so much with the past. The experience was something that struck us. 2 machines, some old article and a biscuit, that was it. Within an hour you have seen both museums.

  • Maybe this place is indeed more fitting for tourists than locals. You do get a very good dose of the history of the area and also of one of the most famous Dutch biscuits and chocolate manufacturers. But you can't help but feel the commercial aspect of the experience. It is perfectly made for those one day excursions for tourists coming to Amsterdam; and it does unfortunately fall into the trap of the stereotyping of the Netherlands. For locals there are other places that would be more fitting for a day out to explore the history of the region and what it has to offer.
  • An interesting museum next to the awesome picnic spot. Overall time spend in the area would be about 1.5-2 hours. Don't forget to get inside one of the windmills to experience the process of making the peanut oil. One of the shops sell Vanilla come ice-cream and it's epic. Totally worth it for 2€. There's also a cheese shop and a workshop where they make Dutch wooden boots(clogs). You can make them yourself and buy a pair too.
