The largest and nicest part is outside.

Museum Terra Maris

Inside there is a food chain puzzle and various fish and seahorses swim in the aquariums. There is also an overview of how the Zeeland islands have developed over the centuries. Finally, there is a sand table with a projector and a VR experience.

Museum garden

In the garden you can walk around and learn at the same time. Various landscapes have been simulated, such as dunes, fields, ponds and an orchard.

We can fish for aquatic animals in the ponds ourselves with a landing net. At the vegetable garden we learn about the seasonal vegetables. There is also a lookout tower (the motte castle) for a beautiful view over the museum garden. With a little imagination you can imagine yourself in the (early) Middle Ages. Finally, there is a (small) play area with water equipment, the ebb and flow seesaw, the nature trail and you can spot birds.

Skip the museum café

Food or drink? Skip the museum café. The staff was mainly concerned with themselves, our table was not cleaned after our request and the prices are high. Do: have a drink in the courtyard of the adjacent StayOkay Castle Westhove or visit Strandcafé Bij Karel.

Tip: discover the nature reserveManteling of Walcheren on foot or by bike!
