Full description
The museum is open for everyone with an interest in Dutch folklore. The collection provides an overview of the most important local costumes worn by everyday people in the past, and still worn in some villages today. Discover this remarkable aspect of Dutch cultural history on the basis of the folk costumes and stories!

The Dutch Costume Museum shows the craftsmanship, artistry and passion that created the Dutch traditional costume. The collection encompasses a cross-section of local traditional dress and folk art per region. Each region has it own garb, with variations in different villages or stages of life, such as marriages and mourning after a death.

The museum houses seven rooms, each room decorated with motives and in colors characteristic for a specific region. Amongst others, the different costumes come from Volendam, Marken, Hindeloopen, Staphorst, Spakenburg, Urk and Zeeland.

The museum is housed in a 17th-century canal house at Herengracht, around the corner of Leidsestraat in the center of Amsterdam.

The museum shop has unique items on sale: jewellery, handcrafted products, writing materials, textile products of traditional fabrics and special children’s gifts. The museum is open for everyone during opening hours of the museum.
