Zeeland is the province of seafarers. For centuries, ships have set sail from Zeeland's ports to all corners of the world. People with guts and courage to discover unknown worlds. The story of Holland's most famous sailor, Michiel de Ruyter, can be found in the muZEEum.
The Zeeuws maritiem muZEEum shows how Zeeland and Vlissingen are connected to maritime history. But also that maritime activity is still very important to Zeeland. We are still closely connected to the world. And we face great challenges together. The muZEEum would like to contribute to that.
The muZEEum wants to be a place where everyone feels welcome. A place where recognizable personal experiences of seafarers are central. Stories from then, but certainly also from now. A muZEEum where everyone can experience the fascinating maritime history of Zeeland.
The Zeeland Maritime Museum is renovating. During the renovation, the muZEEum will be closed. In the summer of 2023, the muZEEum will reopen its doors with a completely new presentation.
The muZEEum is one of the finest museums in the Netherlands. But after twenty years, the main presentation is in dire need of replacement. We have made a wonderful plan for it. A new presentation that connects generations with Zeeland's maritime past and present.
