Museum Schokland

Call us Visit the website
At Museum Schokland you can learn more about the history of Schokland. The museum is located on the Middelbuurt, one of the three medieval residential mounds of the former island of Schokland. The permanent exhibition of the museum consists of geological, archaeological and historical objects that give you an idea of the origin of the island of Schokland and its decay, the life of the population in this area and the draining of the polder. The stories come to life through models, historical films and photos. The showpieces of the museum are a number of prehistoric human footprints that are approximately 4,000 years old. These footprints were found near Schokland in 1984. Surrounding the museum is an area of one hectare where the remains of the former settlements can still be admired on the surface. Think of stone water cellars that were used to collect drinking water and a wooden ice runner shed.
