Rescue museum

The Dutch lifeboat service through the ages and the safety aspects on the waters are at the centre of attention in this museum. The Lifeboat Museum is named after a well known rescuer of Den Helder who was named Dorus Rijkers (1847-1928). Next to the lifesaving company KNRM, attention is also paid to other organisations that undertake rescue work. Original lifeboats, ship models, scale models, paintings, pictures, distinctions, life-saving equipment and films are being displayed. The simulation of a lifeboat at full sea is really nice. Texts, computersimulations and many movies are in English
