This site consists of two sections; an outdoor museum and an indoor museum. In the indoor museum, you can see a collection of historic ships, and learn about the history and clothing of the people from the Zuiderzee culture. There are also special exhibits on display that change throughout the year. While most of the indoor museum is wheelchair accessible via ramps and lifts, there are a few areas within that are not. The outside portion of the museum is a 15 acre preserved village depicting various time periods of time. As a living history museum, you can meet villagers in traditional costume and ask them various questions you have. There are also opportunities where you can also help the villagers make nets, ropes, do laundry, etc. Because of the nature of the historic buildings, not all places are wheelchair accessible. Those that are have wheelchair ramps installed at the entrances. Many of the pathways are wheelchair accessible, but some of them are a bit steep, and many are brick paths that are not perfectly level. As long as you go slow, you should be fine. At the indoor museum, there is a lift and most of the floors are level with plenty of room to turn your wheelchair around. There are also wheelchairs available at the main entrance. Sections 13, 14, and 15 in the Journey around the Zuider are not wheelchair accessible. The Zuiderzee museum website http://www.zuiderzeemuseum.nl/en/56/visit/route/ contains valuable up to date information on parking and transportation to the museum. If arriving by taxi, the company Accessible Travel Netherlands can make arrangements for you. If arriving by public transportation, the museum is a 10-15 minute walk from the Enkuizen train station. There is one accessible toilet inside the entrance of the indoor museum and multiple accessible toilets at the outdoor museum.
