IJsselmeer

Ship hall

You can gaze from the gantry out across the large and unique collection of wooden ships. On the ground floor, you can move among the boats and view them from close-by, such as the Sperwer or the Urk ice scow, the two tjotters (small sailing vessels) named Hou Moed and Kijk Uit, the Wilhelmina with its centreboard, the Marken smack, the Frisian Bol (barge) or the ‘wildschieter’ (duck-hunting boat).                                        All the ships were placed in the hall in 1953, after which the roof was built. This is why the mast-tops stretch precisely up to the roof (to 14 metres.
