  • The history of schokland. First mainland, then an island and mainland. It is very special to look out on the polder landscape and you try to imagine that not so long ago that water was that was a threat to the small island.

  • The former island schokland is made up of several (former) mounds. On one of those mounds is the old water Church (1834) which is still in use. In addition, a building where the museum is located (schokland Museum). Since 1995 schokland is part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. This location is well worth a visit.

  • Today a UNESCO World Heritage site Schokland was an island in the Zuiderzee. Lost their identity, when they reclaimed the surrounding lands until then South Sea bottoms. The permanent exhibition of the Museum aims to tell the tumultuous history of the island, starting from the remains of antiquity, telling all the countless companies in the continuous and exhausting fight against impetuous force of nature, coming up to the present day, showing the consequences resulting from the creation of the surrounding polders. An incredible and fascinating history which marked millions of lives. Recommend visiting if you want approfindire the argument and reconstruct the history of incredible testimony and rare historical artifacts. The only drawback is that you could modernize the communication tools used inside it. The Museum is a good starting point for a walk or a bike ride along the borders of the island today marked by a series of trees.

  • Cute little museum in the middle of nowhere. Big minus point for the coffee though, don't drink it!
  • 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.
  • Interesting story of an old Dutch area
  • The people in Scotland were poor and miserable but their (unfortunately proved futile) fight against the water is an inspiration.

  • The schokland Museum gives a very interesting picture about the history of this island and of the centuries long struggle of its residents against the rising water. The exhibition is a wonderful informative mix of objects, objects, photos and movies. Our compliments!!
