This museum is very good but needs a serious update. The plan for visiting parts of the display are not even close to the current reality. Many parts of the bare ship hull are seriously worn. The rebuilt vessel on the water is much better....More

This ship is a replica of the original that sank in 1629. It is very well made and well worth a visit. Beware that some of the stairs are very steep.

We had swordfighting lessons at the Wharf of the Batavia. Very professional and lots of fun for the children. The wharf itself is quite impressive

Enjoyed my visit, especially visiting the Batavia ship. The other ship is on hold and it is a bit sad to see the frame work being neglected. But still interesting to see.

This place is great fun for history fans and families with kids alike. So much to see and a great crew of volunteers who knows their stuff. Also the cafe is very nice for lunch.

It started with a dream in the seventies and it is now a ship wharf where you can visit the completed Batavia, a VOC ship. You can see the black smith in action, find out how sails are made and visit the complete ship itself....More

Interesting to get into a real ship from the East Indian company. The ship is of course newly built but after an old model. The ship is a bit worn, but is still interesting for those who want to learn more about this subject. Very...More

This is an impressive replica of the Batavia, built by the Dutch East India Company. This commercial trip to Australia with 320 people was met with mutiny and massacres, resulting in its sinking off the Australian coast. Imagine this treacherous voyage of brave sailors, men,...More
