Visit the Museum of the Year during the summer holidays!


The National Maritime Museum is Museum of the Year, and we are celebrating this this summer holiday (8 July to 3 September)!

For families with children of all ages, there is plenty to do both inside and outside, on and around the jetties.

  • 🎣 Go plastic fishing with Plastic Whale
  • 🐋 Join Whale Yoga on the jetty
  • ⚓ Come aboard the VOC ship, and much more!
  • ✏️ Make colorful drawings about the story On the back of Bigi Kayman
  • 🎧 Do the junior audio tour … and much more!

You can find the entire program here. (Note: the museum is also open on Mondays during the summer holidays!)
