Frisian Nature Museum


Ever wanted to walk across the bottom of a water-filled ditch? At the Frisian Nature Museum, you can actually do this, and so many other exciting activities. The Frisian Nature Museum has three floors of information, unusual plants and animals, assignments, experiments, games and other surprises - all just waiting to be discovered!

Underwater Friesland

In ‘Underwater Friesland’, you’re given the opportunity to “descend” to the bottom of a ditch, and see the beautiful life under water. As you walk under the duckweed and between the aquatic plants, you’ll come across diving cormorants, pikes in their hiding spots, and a dangerous looking catfish. And the amazing part is: your feet will stay dry the whole time!

@jouwVerdieping ("on your floor")

@jouwVerdieping is an area that has an extensive collection of birds and insects on display. You do have to find the insects yourself in the many exciting drawers that you’ll find throughout this floor. If you look very carefully, you’ll see critters everywhere! Between the books, magazines, computers and microscopes you’ll find carefully hidden sticklebacks, water fleas, caterpillars, catfish, mice and an entire colony of walking sticks.
