The "Katwijks museum" gives an excellent view about the life and living in the 19th and 20th century. The set-up of the paintings is beautiful located in old houses.

If you are looking for a well stocked local museum, Katwijks museum is your choice. There is a comprehensive amount of historic material, which gives you an insight in the history of the Katwijk people. Expect a lot of fishing-related objects and stories!
