Discover more about migratory birds in the new temporary exhibition 'Weg van de Waddenzee' at Ecomare! The knot and the bar-tailed godwit play a leading role in the exhibition. In the Wadden Sea they eat themselves halfway through their journey. Thousands of migratory birds can be seen in the Wadden Sea for part of the year. But where are they when they are not here and what dangers do they have to face along the way? The exhibition is free for visitors to the museum. Opening hours: open daily (except Christmas Day and New Year's Day) from 9.30 am - 5 pm. The ticket office closes at 4.30 pm.
