Tucked behind the beautiful chestnut tree on museum square, you will find the Terschelling Center for Nature and Landscape. It is much larger than its facade suggests.
Standing in front of the immense glass of a 60,000 liter aquarium, you are face to face with residents of the North and Wadden Seas. Everything swims together in this lively aquarium: big and small, young and old, round fish and flatfish. You can touch and pet the stingrays that swim in an open tank.
Five-year temporary exhibit "Wadden, Weather and Climate" addresses the ins and outs of the unique climate on the mudflats. Fascinating nature films discuss the abundant bird populations on the island and mudflats. The Center is especially suitable for children.
Key words: originate, high and low tide, world heritage site, landscapes, plants and animals, De Boschplaat, sand, fresh water systems, maintaining natural environments, mudflats, shell exhibit, seals, salt; highly suitable for children.
If you are tired of standing, please take a seat in the theater where unique Wadden films are shown non-stop.
Measuring equipment and tools are available for simple natural research. It is fun to do, especially for and with children of about ten years old.
