Texel is the easiest Dutch Wadden Island to get to. The Texelaars are proud of the TESO: Texels Eigen Stoomboot Onderneming (‘Texel’s own steamboat company’). This company has provided ferry transportation between Texel and Den Helder for more than 100 years.

In the exhibit Texel Ferry, models of all the boats ever in service are displayed. From the very first steamboat to the newest one which can carry several hundred cars. The automobiles must be carefully spread out in the hold. Try doing it yourself with the computer simulator.
