Marker Museum

gr032The Marker Museum is located in six historical fisherman´s houses in Marken´s old village centre. The museum has partly maintained the original lay-out of the simple dwellings and is furnished the way in which a Marker fishing family lived until about 1932.

Marker elements are the white washed walls, richly hung with decorated dishes and pictures, the plaited plywood boxes in which the valuable parts of the costume were kept, the open fire place, the rainwater cistern, the fancy cupboard bed and the decorated cupboards.
