Waking to a cool, wet day Bob and I visited the two museums, both of which were entirely different.

The first, the Fries Landbouw Museum (Frisian Agricultural Museum) focussed on the landscape and whilst the second was all about the traditional Dutch Skûtsje.

In the Fries Landbouwmuseum, the visitor was taken on a journey that covered two thousand years of Friesland agricultural history.

There was plenty for the young and old.

The Skûtsjemuseum

Traditional wood boat construction skills are taught and put to use here, and what works of art these artisans create. Launched in 2009, the Skûtsje, Aebelina, was there for us to view.
