my husband was born in USA but can trace his ancestors back to the 1500's to holland. His name is spelled Schoonover and we think his ancestors are from the town of Schoonhoven. We will be in Amsterdam end of may, 2013 with our 4 adult children and I am wondering what would be the best way for us to visit the town of Schoonhoven? Is there a tour we can take? Can anyone suggest a good way to learn about and visit the town of Schoonhoven--library? museums? points of interest? With or without a tour guide?
Our river tour will arrive at Schoonhoven at about 4:30 and is scheduled to depart at 7:30 the following morning. Will there be any museums open after 4:30 in the afternoon. Can you tell me anything about the Dump Store, such as it operating hours, etc. Also is there a special food that I should try while we are there, our meals will be served onboard the ship, but a special coffee, pastry, etc., would be a welcome suggestion.
Thank you in advance.
