‘Zaandam is particularly remarkable and there is enough to paint here for a lifetime. Houses in all colours, hundreds of windmills and delightful boats.’ Claude Monet wrote to his friend and painter Pissarro after arriving in Zaandam on 2 June 1871. Captivated by these motifs, his stay would ultimately last a full four months.
During seasonal holidays the opening hours may differ.
