Enkhuizen

A small Dutch port town with many historic buildings and sites, as well as amazing tulip gardens and nice boat ventures nearby.

Enkhuizen was one of the harbour-towns of the VOC from where overseas trade with the East Indies was conducted. It received city rights in 1355.

Most of the buildings in the museum come from other locations in the Netherlands, such as Purmerend and Amsterdam.
