Welcome to 't Walvisvaarders Huisje
We are travelling back to the 18th century. Klaas Jacobsz Daalder, who went on sea voyages since he was 10, bought this house in 1729 and lived here with his wife and children. Klaas had just been promoted from sailor to commanding officer in the whaling business. Thanks to the prosperous haul in whale catching, he left his footprint, just as later residents of this house, in the form of a magnificent interior. For about 60 years this house was shelter to whale catchers. But there were many more people living in this house and there still are today. For the last 50 years the house has served as a weekend and holiday house.
Would you like to come and visit the special monument 't Walvisvaarders Huisje? Or would you like to participate in a guided tour? Go to events for the dates for visits, guided tours and other activities. We also have exhibitions on a regular basis, see events on the website.
't Walvisvaardershuisje is, because of a major restoration, not open to the public in 2017.
