New exhibitions on Texel

5 April 2018

Texel has a large number of captivating museums which hold new exhibitions every year.
Several museums are reopening this year after comprehensive renovation and restoration.

Aviation & War Museum Texel

The entirely rebuilt and updated Aviation & War Museum Texel opens on 10 May. There are now separate displays on the dramatic events on Texel during World War II, and on Texel’s aviation history. Particular attention is devoted to the Atlantic Wall, which many Texel bunkers were part of.


After a year and a half of restoration the whaler’s cottage museum ’t Walvisvaarders Huisje opens to the public again in Den Hoorn from 30 April. What’s unique about this evocative eighteenth-century Texel whaler’s cottage is that it is still occupied.

Underwater archaeology – Kaap Skil

Museum Kaap Skil hit international headlines with the flawless seventeenth-century dress the Texel divers found in the wreck of the Palmhout in the Waddenzee. More intriguing finds can be seen from this summer, in an exhibition of underwater archaeology.

Wild bees – Ecomare

Are our wild bees at risk? And why are Texel’s bees so special? An exhibition running from 19 April to September in Ecomare considers these industrious creatures: ‘Nederland zoemt’ (‘The Netherlands buzzes’).

Museum Waelstee

The historical-cultural Museum Texel will be called Museum Waelstee from this year. New exhibits can be seen in the former farmhouse in De Waal, depicting the Flood Disaster on Texel and potato cultivation.

Samplers – Oudheidkamer

In days gone by samplers were not just a demonstration of embroidery skills, but were also splendid little pictures! An exhibition of these miniature artworks can be seen in the Oudheidkamer from 28 April.
