Water fun around Ascension Day > Sun 20 May 2012


Water is inextricably linked with the Netherlands and is the central theme in the Zuiderzee Museum in 2012. The Head of the Water Board, a fisherman from (the former island of) Urk and houseboat dwellers will talk about everything concerning their experience with water. Why not begin investigating the topic yourself and discover the role of water in the Netherlands? In the past, present, and future. You can help the Head of the Water Board by taking precautionary measures. Via Skype, you can also connect to an Urk fisherman at sea. Find out how it is to live on the water nowadays and what it was like to live on a dike in the previous century.

In this long weekend there will certainly be enough activities for children in the Museum. Besides all the craft demonstrations and diverse activities, there are also supplementary D-I-Y possibilities such as making soap, painting a tile and pimping a wooden clog.

Visitors with children will be treated to a special map that guarantees lots of joint family fun.
