Marinemuseum Den Helder

Ship and Yard

In the former maintenance workshops an exposition was constructed about the history of navy maintenance.

The visitor acquires insight into development in the three workshops, on three techniques that determine ship maintenance: Timber, Riveting and Welding. The development on the evolution in ‘The Ship’s Armament’ is also displayed, ranging from cannons to automatic weapons. 'Navigation' is the final theme; using sonar, radar and GPS. One piece of exhibition furniture at a time, visitors will uncover a story in text, a hands-on arrangement and various objects. This way, information transfer is set up in a visual and haptic way and thus makes the exhibition dynamic for both children and adults. The ship's armament theme is ideal for a game, this extra fun set up is like a modern version of “Battleship”. Conceptual division and themes make the complexity of the historical developments more easily understandable for the visitor without simplifying the contents. The exhibition begins with a compilation of footage in combination with a mechanical theatre show. This briefly renders important developments in ship-building and maintenance techniques that followed developments in society. The epilogue provides a vision on the future of the Navy.
