A visit to Museum Kaap Skil in Oudeschild on Texel is an experience; there is plenty to do. The exhibitions are about shipping, fishing, maritime history and surfaced finds from shipwrecks. In the open-air museum behind the entrance building you will experience Oudeschild as it used to be. In the model of the Reede van Texel you imagine yourself on a large sailing ship in 1650. Look through the binoculars at the boats and see what happens on board. Also check out all the items that divers have found on the seabed. From beautiful porcelain to articles from the sailors and ship components. Centuries ago sunk and now to be seen! On Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, from May to October, crafts are demonstrated on the outdoor area. The fish smoker, rope streamer, netting finisher, spinning net, blacksmith and ship model builder are regularly at work. On Wednesday the mill turns and corn is ground. In the city you will find thousands of things that have been washed up on the beach and collected in wind and weather. Do you want to hear the stories of the judges? Then look in the calendar on the website kaapskil.nl when he tells about his adventures. In the TESO exhibition you can sail in the simulator with the ferry Dokter Wagemaker. Try to build it in the harbor! Museum Kaap Skil is a great outing for the whole family!
