Kaap Skil is a museum full of stories and adventures about the Roads of Texel, surfaced finds from shipwrecks in the Wadden Sea and the history of the fishing village Oudeschild.
One wreck, one story. The surfaced finds in the exhibition ‘The downfall of the Pieter Anthony’ tell about living in the tropics, class differences and early nineteenth century traditions.
An exposition full of treasures from the sea floor, originating from century-old shipwrecks.
For a long time, it was the most important anchorage in the world. Ships perished regularly, and are now revealing their secrets.
In the small fishing village on the outdoor terrain of Kaap Skil time has stood still. Discover the reconstructed fishermen cottages, the smith and the store from the first half of the 20th century. You can enter everywhere.
