You can go through a submarine and check out an old west indies sailing ship all in all if in the area you should take in this place as it displays the Netherlands strong Naval traditions.

As my father worked here for 30 years ,was keen to visit this previous high security facility. I was not disappointed. So many places to visit within the previous " Werf" . The museum itself is worth the entry fee alone. Do take the time walking around the place. Lots of boats,both sail and steam on view.The submarine is amazing.... More

We randomly stopped in while driving around Den Helder looking for things to do. Our 2 children loved this experience--its more than a museum. We spent about 2.5 hrs on the submarine and ships-- the inside portion was excellent too-- very well organized and lots of interactive exhibits- what else can I say-- very very cool!

This is a great museum. Well organized, lots of information, helpful staff. Well displayed exhibits, many excellent models and three vessels to visit plus the bridge of a late 20th Century frigate. A small and very good restaurant can be found aboard a 19th Century steam ram. Very reasonably priced. One thing to be aware of, this museum is dedicated... More

Real submarine as a part of the museum, a lot of weaponry, everything well organised and in good conditions. The Netherlands has a great history of the Navy, that is why they have so many different museums related to that topic. The place will be interesting for everyone who interested in History also if you want to see that all... More

It's informational and for only 6 euro you will have a great day, most of the museum is wheelchair friendly but the "active" bridge and the submarine are not. (in my opinion the best parts of the museum) All in all well worth a visit for both young and old.

Den Helder is not a large town, and not much to do. This is a great exposure to the maritime aspect of the town.

An extensive history of the centuries of naval history of the Dutch Royal Navy and her predecessors. Very comprehensive although shortcuts are available; kids are able to take their own tour and climbing through a real submarine is something to experience. Usually there are lots of former Navy servicemen around working as volunteers to tell the stories thatb have not... More

Worth seeing especially if you are around. The main attraction, at least of us, was an old Dutch submarine, which you can visit inside; interesting experience. Many things to see; however, not so enjoyable in a cold winter weather as you need to walk outside. We will probably go back in summer. Recommended!

Spent 6 hours walking around this museum and could easily spend more. Highlights were the submarine and the radar bridge. Well worth seeking out. Lots of interactive attractions and most have translations to English.
