Schokland is a former island now situated in a vast flat landscape. It is a port on dry land, in an area that used to be the Zuiderzee. Children can set to work as an archaeologist or build a dike.
A unique part of the Netherlands
A unique part of the country, in 1995 it became the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Netherlands. Museum Schokland is situated in the middle of the former island. The wooden sea wall is visible from far away, and the iconic church serves as a beacon in this newly built landscape.
For young and old alike
The museum is the perfect starting point to discover the former island. There’s plenty to do both inside the museum and out. A highlight of the permanent exhibition are footprints dating back over 4,000 years. These are some of the oldest in Europe. Young researchers can set to work with the interactive sandbox or see a real shipworm up close.
