Saturday 11 September 2021 During the Open Monument Day, the Stichting Texels Museum is organizing an extra activity at the Antiquity Room: the 'Geurmonumentje' (Fragrance monument). The museum is free to enter that day. The Oudheidkamer from 1599 is a national monument. The interior with furniture and consumables from the time of 'grandma's grandmother' evokes memories for many. These are enhanced during the Open Monument Day by adding the element of fragrance. Fragrances that are familiar to some, a tangible introduction to the past for others. In addition to the former guest house, the impressive and wonderfully secluded herb garden behind the building is also freely accessible to visitors. Opening hours: 2 pm - 4 pm.
