Here the exploration of the Zwin region starts. Discover in the visitors centre the fascinating and tumultuous history of 2000 years Zwin region. In the old school building (1899) you can immerse yourself in the hard life of the fishermen and their families. Taste the particular people’s culture. Go into the museum garden and board the Jessica, a shrimp boat from the 1930’s. In the visitors centre children do make a separate tour. In the attic of the old school building, they also can find things to do, both amusing and educating.
