Discover the Old Dutch cultural history and costumes


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 its own garb, with variations in different villages or stages of life, such as marriage and mourning after a death.


Costume Photography in Volendam costume! Families, friends, sports clubs, company parties and bachelor parties, everyone is welcome at the studio. The studio has its own entrance and can be visited separately. You will be helped by our team in figuring out and dress up costumes. These are drawn over their own clothes, so you’re ready soon. The dress always makes for a hilarious moment again and is an experience in itself. The photos are printed while undress so that you can take immediately. A perfect souvenir of a nice break in Amsterdam!


Special rates apply for school groups or other groups of 10 visitors or more. For business events and conferences, the museum is for hire after opening hours. Catering for these occasions can be arranged, if desired.
