Steamtram and Boat
The most exciting journey through time by Steamtram and Boat!
Museum Steamtram Hoorn-Medemblik is the leading museum about Dutch steam tram history. Both our fascinating Hoorn museum site and our scenic railway have a lot to offer. Enjoy a trip in our heritage tramway coaches, be sure to spot our historic bridges and buildings along the route, and take in the breathtaking scenery from the deck of our heritage steamer “Friesland”. A visit to museum Steamtram Hoorn-Medemblik consists of several parts; be sure not to miss any!
The engine whistles and the fireman shovels coal into the firebox. Wooden partitions creak, wheels sing and steam hisses. From the wooden 3rd class seats in your carriage you will experience a story from a different era. Between the historic “Zuiderzee” towns of Hoorn , Medemblik and Enkhuizen steamtrams meander from village to village across the Westfrisian countryside and an old-fashioned steamer with a fantastic saloon-deck sails along the coast of lake IJsselmeer.
Pay a visit to the Museum Steamtram and step on board for one of the most thrilling journeys through time. This is the Registered Museum focusing on the history of the steam tramways in Holland.
