Exhibitions

Throughout the year, Museum Kaap Skil contains various exhibitions on fishing, shipping, beachcombing and the importance of Texel in the seventeenth century. At the time, Texel was an important hub for shipping. Off the coast near Oudeschild was the Reede van Texel, the largest anchorage in the world. This is brought to life in Museum Kaap Skil by the world's largest maritime model.

Open air museum

In the open air museum you go back in time. From May to October old crafts are regularly shown here. Fishermen polish their nets, fish is smoked and the blacksmith shows how things went in the forge.
