An amazing museum loaded with history, not only the collection, but the building itself as well. Because it was the home of the very rich ship owner who employed the world famous sailor (later admiral) Michiel de Ruiter.

The old mansions of shipping magnats house this collection of maritime history. Vlissingen is proud of its role in international trade and shows it in this venue.

This museum is disorganized. The collection is a bunch of maritime stuff that is shown throughout the building but not in easy to understand themes. Example: while walking through it you see different times lines but without a proper subject why the timeline is there....More
