We had a lovely cycle to De Koog to see the museum which is full of odd things that have washed up on the shore of the Island over the years. There is plenty to see.

We (two adults of 31 and 48) did not enjoy this place as much as others here on this site did. The museum objects aren't that intrestingly arranged, the scraps of newspaper cutting that can be found on several spots look old fashioned and not...More

Interesting to see what is found on the Dutch beach. Everything is in German, English and Dutch. Its amazing to see all the find from all these years. It was raining, but most of the musuem is inside so that was no problem.

Visiting Texel, this place is definitely worth a visit. One can not image what washes up the beach of Texel during the annual storms. The accompanying stories are even better. Just make a stop a have a look.

Very nice and interesting museum. Amazing to see all the stuff that drifts ashore. Fortunately we are Dutch so we enjoyed the stories that were told. Very nice for children too.

This place is DEFINITELY worth a visit. It is chock-a-block with stuff that has been washed up on the beach over the years, and all that stuff is beautifully displayed in indoor and outdoor exhibits. It's shocking and interesting and very curious. The only problem...More
