Donations and legacies

Donations in kind

Are you looking for a good destination for a painting or other object from the past? You could consider donating it to a museum. At Museum Kaap Skil, items with a link to the maritime history of Texel are very welcome. Also objects which were used in the olden days at home are often gratefully accepted at Kaap Skil or the House of Antiquities. The museums only accept items which fit into the collection. The curator determines what’s acceptable. When an item is accepted, a donation form is filed. This records any wishes and all that is known about the donation. In that way, valuable knowledge is not lost.

Tax-free donations

A monetary donation to Museum Kaap Skil can be deducted from taxes when a donation agreement is filed for a minimum of five years. Should you want this, please get in touch with Marion Barth via or 0031-222-314956.


Are you considering including a charity in your will? If you are fond of shipping and history, perhaps Kaap Skil is the charity you’re looking for. Thanks to the ANBI status, the museum doesn’t need to pay any gift tax. In this way, the legacy can be spent entirely on the charity: conservation and management of Texel’s cultural maritime heritage.
