The sluice house
The Flessenscheepjes Museum is an institution that receives no government funding, and is located in the Spuihuisje, the 16th-century sluice house in Enkhuizen. The sluice house was built on the sluice gate of the Westfriesche Omringdijk, the West Friesland ring dike, after the first inland harbor was dug in Enkhuizen in the 14th century.
