The movie theatre is bigger than you might expect and the movie about the history tells the whole story of Schokland and the area. Very informative.

We visited Schokland as part of a family celebration. We had lunch there in the restaurant, which was fine and then were given a presentation about the site in the charming little church. The museum is rather disappointing and rather dusty!

A pleasant enough place to spend an hour or two if you are nearby, but as Unesco world heritage sights go this one is pretty unremarkable. The film is interesting, but the museum is then redundant, as the story of the former island really doesn't...More
