Oostvaardersdijk 01-13 | Navigation to: Bataviaplein 2, 8242 PA Lelystad, The Netherlands
The location indicated on TripAdvisor is wrong (the address is correct). I made the correction today hopefully it will be updated soon. The actual location is just next to the outlet (use outlet parking).
The TripAdvisor location was showing a location about 2 km away....More
Been here for the time since they build the replica of the VOC ship the Batavia, I also saw it again in Sydney Australia at the millennium as well as I saw it in Jakarta when it was on its way down under. Yesterday I...More
We had seen the remains of the original Batavia in Perth,
Australia, and read the gruesome story of what happened with the crew and passengers and were keen to see the replica. It was a great experience, particularly seeing how they ships were constructed so...More
Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to visit the museum, so we only been to the shipyard. Very nice and realistic to see how they made large sail ships in the early days. Also very nice to see and get into the ship "Batavia" and...More
Initially, we toured the museum. It provided a lot of information related to the transition of the sea and land of the region. Very informative to see how the land has changed over the last 1000 years. The museum is in Dutch but there are...More
Very nice tour. It can be guided or on your own. Amazing to see the iron smiths at work and how much work it took to build these massive ships by hand.
The Batavia ship tour is quite amazing. It can get a bit tight...More
This museum is very good but needs a serious update. The plan for visiting parts of the display are not even close to the current reality. Many parts of the bare ship hull are seriously worn.
The rebuilt vessel on the water is much better....More
Been there in May 2018, the museum is very interesting to see, there are lot of workshops (carpenter, modelmaker, sails, ropes, blacksmith etc.) and you can watch them, how they renovate the parts for the ship. There are also some attractions for children (they can...More

1) Is there a separate museum that explains Holland's 17th century seaborne empire that Batavia served - the Bratavialand Museum does a great job of explaining the history and transition of the Netherlands from prehistoric thru the concept of the dams (Afsluidijk). and howbthe people and land adapted. Reviews 7000 years of history. There is a movie which they can run in various languages
Or, is the museum on board Batavia - the museum is separate from the Batavia and it is a short walk away.
Can we hire private guide to give us Batavia tour - the staff at the Shipyard are extremely helpful. We toured the museum first. The staff from the museum arranged a private tour in English. Our guide was extremely knowledge about the ship and the resources needed to build her. We tour the workshops and then the ship. Combined it took about 3.5-4 hours. I do not remember hearing about the Dutch exploration.
Is there a museum (anywhere in Holland) on Holland's seaborne empire ? *We are interested in Dutch colony in Nagasaki - I am unfamiliar of one but email the Batavialand Museum and ask them
I hope this had helped some
