The Cooperage is located at the Zaanse Schans. Here you’re introduced to the old craft of making barrels. The volunteers of the Zaans Museum will tell you all about it!
S.R. Tiemstra en Zonen
The interior originates from cooperage and barrel-makers S.R. Tiemstra & Sons from Oostzanerwerf in the north of Amsterdam. Upon his death, the last cooper – Jaap Tiemstra – bequeathed the entire cooperage to the Zaans Museum.
The tools, machines, vats, and inventory now have their own special place on the Zaanse Schans and the Zaans Museum has breathed new life into the cooperage of Jaap Tiemstra. Knowledgeable volunteers will tell you all about and demonstrate the old craft of making barrels.
