Nice to be back. They moved the entrance ! Especially liked the 2 movies playing in the ammo room; very nice to learn about the Dutch water defenses throughout the centuries. Good for 1~2 hours.

If you're in Naarden, this will introduce you to the history of the design of the area. We enjoyed the informative tour of the sights which we were able to do at our own pace.

The museum is located in one of the walls of the vesting near the bridge next to the moat. It is relatively small but but has interesting layouts, maps and literature of the town and period. One can take a walk over the bridge to...More

This is a visit to one of the points of this fortified town. Very good view of part of the town and also the surrounding countryside. It would be better if there were more signage in English. Shows how the Dutch were prepared for protecting...More

All kinds of displays telling the story of the various fortififications of the Netherlands built into part of the fortiffication of Naarden itself. Great fun for young and old. The program varies throug the year, so check up front what to expect.

Well the fort museum is interesting place, with exhibitions explaining the whole flooding defense strategy for the Netherlands. There is just one problem - nothing is explained in English. For most of the time you have to google it when you find something interesting. Like...More

Our boys loved it here - you can explore in the tunnels and experience history first hand. Lovely views from here and on the day we visited we got to see the cannons being loaded and fired. Definitely worth a visit.

The exhibits are in Nederlands only, so it was a bit difficult to stay engaged as an English speaker. Perhaps more translations would help. Also lighting in some areas was quite lacking. The area is clean, there's lots to do and see.
