(Review in Dutch)

Een aan te raden museum, zowel voor ouderen als voor kinderen een leuke ervaring. Leerzaam en afwisselende opstellingen over de historie van de Zaanstreek. Het museum toont de ontwikkelingen op cultureel en sociaal gebied in de Zaanstreek en de impact op de streek. Na dit museum is het overigens erg leuk om een bezoek aan de Zaanse Schans te brengen!
