Jutterskunst maken bij Museum Kaap Skil VVV Texel

Fun museums for children

Want to know which museums are awesome to go to with the kids? We give you tips!

1. Ecomare

You can learn a lot at Ecomare. In addition to seals, birds and fish, you will find the largest skeleton in the Netherlands! There are also exhibitions you can view. For example, about the mud flats, the sea and the animals that live around Texel.

2. Museum Kaap Skil

Museum Kaap Skil has an interactive exhibition which is very interesting for children. This way you can learn more about the maritime past of Texel. The kids can have fun with bingo at Museum Kaap Skil. Take the bingo card from the ticket office and go around the museum looking for the items depicted. Who will have bingo first?

3. Maritime and Beachcomber's Museum Flora

In Maritiem- en Juttersmuseum Flora there is a large number of objects that were washed ashore years ago. Anchors, buoys and even an aircraft engine have been found on the Texel beach over the years. A scavenger hunt has been set up for children. In addition to the scavenger hunt, there is also a large playground where children can have fun.

4. Texel Zoo

Rather watch monkeys? Then go to Texel Zoo! There are more than 40 animal species and some 350 birds to view here. Mammals such as meerkats, birds of prey, butterflies and reptiles can all be found here. Fun to take a day trip with the kids!

5. Lighthouse

Texel's sturdy red lighthouse is also worth climbing with the kids! At 45 meters high you have a beautiful view over the sea and can see very far if it is clear. While you climb the stairs, you will be given information about the history of the lighthouse in a fun way.


This and other Texel museums organize many more activities. Check them out in the agenda.
