Ecomare is on a beautiful place on texel. A few times a day the animals are fed which visitors can watch. You can easily entertain yourself here for 2-3 hours or more.

We visited Ecomare with a 10 and 12 year old and our sons found it very interesting. They liked doing the short quizzes that are at most of the exhibitions. We also watched a few films in the ‘cinema’.
