    1) Dunno
    2) By train you can't do it without changing at Amsterdam Centraal, but even so it only takes 36-47 mins altogether. However, the Zuidtangent bus 300 to/from the airport serves Haarlem, see schiphol.nl/Transport/Access....

    Hello,

    Did you get my previous answer about public transport from Edam to Zaansche Schans? You can use that website to plan your trips.

    Most places in the Netherlands can be reached by public transport. From Haarlem to Zaansche Schans can be done in less than 1 hour.

    Schiphol-Haarlem is 30-45 minutes by train (indeed a transfer in Amsterdam) or 45 minutes by bus 300(no transfer).

    Cheers
    Dennis

    Just some info from the Zaanse Schans website:
    http://www.zaanseschans.nl/

    Notice
    From January 2008 the Juliana Bridge next to the Zaanse Schans will be closed until the summer of 2009. Pedestrians and bicyclists will be able to reach the Zaanse Schans by a small ferry operating in the area at 10-minute intervals throughout the day. Cars approaching from Alkmaar should follow the yellow diversion signs.

    By train
    Only four stations (20 minutes) by train from Amsterdam Centraal Station. Take the stop train direction Alkmaar to Koog-Zaandijk. From the station simply follow the signs to the Zaanse Schans. It is 5-minute walk from the station to the ferry. Pedestrians will be able to reach the Zaanse Schans by a small ferry operating in the area at 10-minute intervals throughout the day. It is 5-minute walk to the Zaanse Schans and 10-minutes to the Zaans Museum.
