A maritime model, which fills a good part of the basement of the entrance building, brings the Roads of Texel to life. In the Golden Ages, this was the most important anchorage in the world.

The 160 meticulously reconstructed commercial and warships give a good impression. The sea full with masts and sails, creaking wood, shouting men and sloshing waves. Experience a storm on the Roads and feel the panic by the sailors. Zoom in on the ships and listen to the stories of the seamen.
