This cooperage museum is located at de Zaanse Schans.
The interior of this building comes from the barrels and cooperage trade S.R. Tiemstra & Sons. On the death of the last cooper, Jaap Tiemstra, in 1999 he left behind a completely intact cooperage.
Cooperage Tiemstra was established in 1919 by his father Simon Tiemstra. Until 1987, Jaap ran the company with his brother Simon. The cooperage was a wet coorperage, here were made containers for wet goods such as herring and drinks.
