Canon of the Netherlands
In the interactive Canon presentation at the entrance you can see and experience the 'great events' of our history. You can step into the shoes of an enslaved person, experience how hard the work was back then or steer your own ship. In the cinema, you will learn more about your own (regional) history in no time. The entire Canon of the Netherlands can be visited with an audio tour. So it's worth a visit!
