“interesting ship”

V.O.C. Ship Batavia
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 April 2017

You can actually enter the ship, but you first have to get a ticket at the main building in walking distance from the ship. Well kept up. They constantly work on it to keep it in top shape.

Here you can climb aboard this 17th century replica of a Dutch Galleon ship. This really has to be seen to be believed. We had a good discussion with a lady in the sail loft who was very knowledgeable about the history of this ship. A good few hours spent here.

Visiting in winter time is not a good idea with wet wind and very strong blows from the see but its all worth when we enter the ships as the makers is really detail in make a replica of the ship which singking in Indonesian sea in mid century. the guide is very nice in telling the story of the ships. The store and the museum also very good to visit.the only pitty is that the ship can not sail or just stay as museum.

The Batavia is a 17th century Dutch galleon in working order. This is the kind of ship that struck fear into the hearts of sailors from France, Spain and Britain in the day. It is truly beautiful and brilliantly maintained as a working museum. But that's only half the story! Across the street is the "Batavia Werf" - the working guts of this incredible piece of history. There, crafts-men and -women are faithfully rebuilding another ship - the "Seven Provinces" from the inside out. They use old methods to recreate every facet of these incredible sailing ships. A guide will show you how they carve every figurehead from scratch, training master wood carvers in the process. The sailmakers must prove their ability to create every needed stitch before they are allowed to stand behind the ropes in the sailmakers loft. Ropemakers, tacklemakers, every old craft is being built or rebuilt to the old standards - and the new. This is a world-class experience for any kid (old or young) who has dreamed about working and living on these vessels. Don't miss this one if you are in the area!
