  • On a quiet Tuesday we visited this beautiful fort that dates back to the early 19th century. The outdoor unit is beautiful. Above all, the views of North Sea, Wadden Sea Den Helder, and dunes. The exhibition part, which, in particular on WW II went I found personally what static with all those dressed up dolls. Sea-aquarium I found more entertaining, though I have seen more beautiful. But in terms of ratio entrance and bid, if you still are in the area: go to it!

  • The aquarium is very nice to visit with young children. It is quite small. However, there is also a museum and also this is very nice to look at. Certainly when the weather outside is also fun to the bunkers. Though I found it quite cluttered with all kinds of small spaces. Afterwards also revealed that not everything we had seen.

  • Small clear museum and aquarium. Our toddler in particular wanted to see the fish aquarium and found beautiful. The "PAL" is out of date, not good for the animals.

  • Great nice place for a tour. Great museum of war, nice antiques. The sea museum was awesome, the smell of the sea was great. Paid 8 eur a piece. Hated: no discount for students and no english translation, just Dutch writting. The place is also nice to walk to, thru the seaside.
  • Interesting spot, super view's. But missed to visit the museum.
  • It's ok. Was a little disappointed that we could not explore the outside of the fort more as everything was closed off. None of the exhibit details are in English. Also only cash is accepted.
  • Very nice adventures place for adults & kids. There are bunkers.. tunnels and a nice aquarium.
  • Great place to learn about the history.
