On the museum grounds, a street has been reconstructed, inspired by a number of homes in the neighborhood ‘t Buurtje in Oudeschild. Three houses, a bakery and a smith give a good impression of village life in the fishing village.

Two of the homes have been designed as fishermen cottages; the third one is a carpenter’s house. The design dates back to the early 20th century. Water came from a pump, entertainment via the radio, the wash dried at the stove and even the kitchen had a ‘bedstede’(box-bed). Space was limited in the house; it had to accommodate an entire family as well used as a workshop. No wonder that living and work was mixed together.
