The Tonijn submarine and the Tower, along with its historical collection, will be open to visitors on a daily basis. The same is true of the Ordnance Repair shop, provided we have enough attendants on that day.

The Abraham Crijnssen and Schorpioen museum ships will  be open every day to the public.  The bridge of the Ruyter ship and our restaurant will remain closed for the time being.
