The municipality of Schouwen-Duiveland has about 34.000 residents and has many museums of which all of them have their own particular story. So if you would really like to do something completely different, just go into a museum.
Het Blikkenmuseum (Tin museum) in Renesse. You will find museum De Blikvanger on the Capelweg 18, in Renesse. Four thousand of Tins of which all have a topical theme are displayed here. This private museum has limited opening times. For more information on opening times please contact VVV - The Tourist Information centre of Schouwen-Duiveland.
There are three museums in Zierikzee.
Het Stadshuismuseum (city hall museum) on the Meelstraat has recently been renewed. This museum explains everything about the history, wealth and poverty of Zierikzee.
The Cameramuseum of the Netherlands on the Visstraat, is the only one of its kind.
Museumhaven (Oude Haven) City’s wharf of Commerce (Vissersdijk) has as theme: The restoration of Old Zeeuwse ships.
Near the creek area of Ouwerkerk you will find the Waternoodsmuseum (flood disaster museum), housed in four caissons of which eventually closed the last hole in the dyke of the flood disaster of 1953. Parts of the interior of the third and fourth caisson have recently been restyled. The fourth caisson has touch screen-tables, large screens and a serious game focusing on having a secure water future.
In Bruinisse you have:
Visserijmuseum (Fishery) and Oudheidskamer – explaining everything about the life of mussel fishermen and how people used to live in the 18th century.
This also becomes clear at:
Goemanszorg in Dreischor; this is an agricultural and regional museum, which is housed in an old farm. This museum explains everything to you, about how farm life looked like some hundred years ago, and how mechanisation had its effect on agriculture.
You can see the wealthy maritime past of Brouwershaven in: Brouws Museum, de Haven Zuidzijde (Southside of the harbour).
Just outside of Brouwershaven in Den Osse you will find: Mini Maritieme Museum Den Osse. Some years ago this museum was located at Viane in Ouwerkerk. Joop van der Marel, captain of party ship Grevelingen, compiled the collection. You can also view many museum objects on board.
To the Westside of Schouwen at Burgh you can visit:
Burghse School, which has a classroom in the style of the 1920.
Finally, there is also a private museum in Haamstede , which is well worth checking; Brilmuseum Ogen Tekort, visits can only be made by appointment
