Agriculture-Beachcomber museum Swartwoude - Tourist Information Centre “VVV” Ameland

Agriculture-Beachcomber museum Swartwoude

It seems romantic, but in fact it was a struggle for existence; the life of farmers on the Ameland of the past. Most Ameland farmers used to combine farming with fishing, hunting and beachcombing. That's why the exposition in the museum consists of two parts: agriculture and beach combing.

The agricultural part is a "living museum": not only will you see old machinery, but also free-roaming livestock. In the authentically decorated farm, farmer's way of life from around 1900 comes to life.

The second part is the beachcombers museum. You will be amazed by the wide variety of beach findings collected by island beachcombers through the centuries.

The Agriculture-Beachcomber museum Swartwoude is wheelchair accessible.
