Quirky treasures!
Aug 2021 • Family
This is a really quirky museum that the whole family enjoyed. It’s mind-blowing how much stuff can be retrieved from the sea - the love box was my favorite! Cake, coffee & playground at the end was also very welcome!

A surprisingly enjoyable few hours
Oct 2019 • Family
Visited in October with family including a young child. Having driven past on the road a few times but never been tempted to go in we were persuaded by our daughter to try it. We were pleasantly surprised. It is well laid out and organized eclectic collection of flotsam and jetsam collected by beachcombers on Texel. Although there are only short explanations in English (with a longer Dutch explanation, letters, newspaper articles etc) the museum is so visual it still makes for a very pleasant couple of hours. There is a good cafe selling toasted sandwiches and drinks and an excellent playground outside.

Having been to the beachcomber exhibition at Museum Kaap Skil I would say this is much larger and more interactive for children. Not surprising that it has a #1 position on a number of activity websites.

Not much good for english speakers
Aug 2019
We came to Texel for a day trip and were interested in hearing the stories of the peculiar items that had been shipwrecked on Texel. However as we are English speaking all the notices and newspaper articles were in Dutch so there was not any back story we could read in the items and only a brief translation of what the item was that was in English. So although visually the experience was amazing it didn't match up to our expectations of the place

If you do not know about beach combing, do visit. Also if you do know.

If you do not know (much) about beach combing, do not miss this museum when on Texel island. And if you do, you will really appreciate it. It is a surreal mix of funny and tragic remains of shipwrecks and losses at sea. The exhibits are located in the yard, huts and the main building. Some exhibits are displayed in almost an artistic way, like the ropes collection (photo).

Heaven for anyone who loves beach combing
Sep 2018 • Couples
We LOVED this museum. It’s slightly crazy and untidy in places but that is part of its charm. Visually mesmerising to see the beauty of turquoise coppers, twisted rusty metal and rows of glass etc. An artist’s dream. Favourite exhibit was the messages in bottles. Sat and read them all and was amused and moved in equal measure.

An amazing collection - a reminder of the awesome power of the sea
Aug 2018 • Friends
So many shipwrecks from such a small island! Many of the pieces of wreckage or flotsam accompanied by photos or news clippings.

And for those whose attention wanders after a few minutes of printed words (think teenage boys), there are strategically places games to play all the way around and a large play area at the end.

There is so much to see that it is actually a bit overwhelming - I think it's the kind of place one needs to visit a few times to absorb most of it (entrance is pretty reasonable for the level of entertainment/enjoyment).

There's a café serving snacks - we didn't try anything because we were still very full from lunch at Restaurant Worsteltent just a few minutes cycling away.

I will definitely be back - so will the children who exclaimed "why do the Netherlands have such great museums?!"

Fascinating
Aug 2018 • Couples
We spent a good couple of hours here. Fascinating finds from shipwrecks, old houses to look in, windmill, beachcombers collection. There were people carrying out fishing related activities such as rope making, making nets and smoking fish . Interesting to see and you could eat the smoked fish which was delicious! Nice cafe area too.

Interesting place to visit.
Oct 2017 • Couples
This plac looks like a junkyard but it tells the history of the island Texel and the maritime findings. They have a lot of item coming from shipwreks over many years. The film telling how they got to it are very interesting. This museum is a must when you visit Texel.

This lovely place tells you the history of Strand Jutten.
It's a must see when one is on the island, then you'll understand the life on the island a bit more. You'll see a variaty of goods wich have been found on the beeches of Texel.
