In deze nieuwe zomerrondleiding zwemmen we haast letterlijk door het museum, op zoek naar spannende verhalen over water en plezier. We eindigen buiten op het VOC-schip, mét een natje en een droogje. Extra leuk als het mooi weer is!

During the 'dry swimming' guided familytour, we almost literally swim through the museum, on the lookout for exciting stories about water and fun. We end outside on the East Indiaman with something to drink and something to eat. So much extra fun when the weather is nice!

Come to the National Maritime Museum during the summer holidays and discover a hidden place, where a sombre fisherman will tell an exciting and moving story about everything he catches these days. Do the toddlers know how to cheer him up? 

Come along and step aboard the Plastic Whale sloop at 12:00, 13:15 and 14:30 o'clock (times with a proviso) to fish plastic in the water around the museum. Want to help? Take a look at www.plasticwhale.org for more information about the organisation and about what happens to your plastic.
