The Luchtvaart-en Oorlogsmuseum Texel (Aviation and War Museum Texel) tells the incredible story of the Georgian uprising on Texel, also known as the Russian War, in a special way. In the '3D audio experience' in bunker De Vlijt, you and Jetty Bakker experience her meeting with Sjalva Loladze, how she translates the English radio messages and how the tension among the soldiers rises when it becomes clear that the uprising is not a success. With a volunteer you walk in a small group to the bunker where you can listen to the stories with headphones for half an hour. Opening hours: every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm. The 3D audio tour can only be done in combination with the purchase of a ticket for a simultaneous museum visit.
