  • I visited the Schokland island and the museum ,discovering many secrets of this unique piece of land of the Netherlands .In 1995 Schokland and the surrounding area was included to the list of Unesco W...  more »
  • Schokland has surprised us in its beauty and versatility despite the small size. Quite rightly, this world heritage site is unique and at the same time speaking for the history of the Netherlands. After a night in Emmeloord decided to have a look here. Very worth it. Schokland gives a picture of living mounds, of Netherlands in prehistoric times, of religious struggle in the golden age, of the disadvantages of an Empire (the problem with the pole worms), of the eternal struggle with the water and of a lonely and anxious exist on a island that slowly withers away. In addition, the story told of the victory on the water and the reclamation of the polder. What was once an island, is now on dry land. In the back of the Church was now also a beautiful exhibition of portraits of pioneers who dared to live in the newly created country.

  • I had a great time there.
  • Although Schokland is a very significant place, you have to really understand the history to appreciate it. Luckily there are quite a few signs and information booths across the site to tell you more. It is a very pleasant place just to walk around and it was nice and quiet on the day that I visited. The museum was closed because it's only open during peak seasons, but it is still worth a visit, partly because of its World Heritage Site status.
  • Cute little museum in the middle of nowhere. Big minus point for the coffee though, don't drink it!
  • Decent food at a nice place, but the waiters were quite unprofessional.
  • Interesting story of an old Dutch area
