Texel has a large number of captivating museums which hold new exhibitions every year. In fact, this year, yet another museum has been added!
The new exhibition “Trui aan, trossen los!” (Sweater on, anchors away!) in Kaap Skil centres on the role of children in the fishing industry at the turn of the last century. In Oosterend and Oudeschild, people mainly fished in family groups. Boys were expected to work on the boats to help feed all the mouths. There are all sorts of great activities for specifically for children and visitors can try on genuine fishermen’s ganseys.
The Netherlands’ first real Sheep Museum is to open officially in 2018 but you can already pay it a visit. The museum is housed in a genuine Texel schapenboet (a barn for sheep) on Wezenspyk Cheese Farm. Here, you can learn all about the “Texelaar”, a variety of sheep famous the world over.
At the exhibition “Kennis uit Zee” (Learning from the Sea) at Ecomare, you can find out what researchers do when they study the North Sea and the Wadden Sea Region. How far do seals swim? Which species arrive as stowaways on ships?
