Come and have a look an a Monday afternoon (May up and until October) (ticket booking) or apply for a private guided tour (whole year round).



Travel back to the time of Klaas Jacobsz Daalder and have a look at 't Walvisvaarders Huisje. You can discover the front room in typical "Zaans" blue, the back room in apple blossom pink and the kitchen with the beautifully decorated chimney. You will find box-beds, items from former times and so called 'Harlinger' tiles from the 18th century.


There are three time slots on Monday afternoons: 14:00 h, 15:00 h  and 16:00 h (approx. 45 minutes). We collect a small contribution of € 3.00 per person. The proceeds will entirely support the facilitation of the opening of 't Walvisvaarders Huisje. Children under the age of 5 and visitors with a Texelse Museumpas have free entry. Tickets are available on the website of the Texel tourist association (VVV). You can find the opening hours on the events page
