Combined ticket to Lifeboat museum and Navy Museum

Den Helder is surrounded by water. Hardly surprising then that it is home to not one but two museums that revolve around the briny deep, the Marinemumseum (Navy Museum) and the Nationaal Reddingmuseum Dorus Rijkers (Dorus Rijkers National Lifeboat Museum). Both of which are delightful museums in their own right, each with their own story to tell.

Combined tickets are €16 for adults and €11 for young people from age 4 up to and including 12 years of age. Tickets remain valid for an extended period of time. Which means you get to visit the museums on several days, enabling you to experience the Royal Netherlands Navy as well as the Netherlands sea rescue services first hand.
