Maritime Centre Abraham Fock

The Maritime Centre Abraham Fock is a very versatile museum to visit during your stay on Ameland. The museum is also known for the horse lifeboat. A very interesting demonstration in which powerful horses work together to assist a lifeboat. Feast your eyes on the demonstrations taking place on the beach southwest of Hollum. From the dunes, you get a perfect view of how things used to be during rescue operations.

But these spectacular rescue operations are not the only thing the Maritime Centre has to offer. Imagine yourself in the world of radio communications, take a look at the life of a captain, navigate a boat and learn about peculiar captain stories. You, as well as the children, will remember this indispensable day forever. Experience it all at Abraham Fock, the maritime centre on Ameland.
