Silvermuseum is very nice little museum with beautiful jewellery, tableware and other things made of silver. The museum shop should be better. Not so much to buy.

Schoonhoven is a lovely town somewhat off the beaten track that is an hour or less (depending upon how you hit the brief ferry ride across the Lek) from Kinderdijk. We drove through the city's ferry gate and up some narrow streets to available parking...More

Excellent museum that provides good insight in the use of silver over the centuries. From everyday use e.g dining, tea up to modern contemporary design. Activities fir children as well as live young designers in action.

Free to visit and really an enjoyable way to understand silver smithing. As a tourist, this museum enhances the experience of buying or enjoying silver pieces.
