Covid-19 virus

Due to government measures regarding the Covid-19 virus, the museum is currently forced to keep the doors closed. As soon as more is known about the measures and possible relaxation, it will be considered when the museum could open.

Volunteer evening December 2019

Now that the season is over, it was time to go through the season and future plans. The volunteers came to Heeren van Noordwijk to watch a presentation by the board and to ask questions. After the presentation we enjoyed a snack and a drink.

During the presentation Jan Heus shows the selected new clothing for the guides.

First opening day of the season

It’s already May this weekend. This means the hibernation of the bats is over and the museum season can start again.
Due to the May 5 route, a special rate applies for a visit including a tour on this first opening day.

With the May 5 route, old and young can go via walking and cycling routes past special places and war monuments in the municipality of Noordwijk.
Which have to do with WWI and WWII or other acts of war in which the Kingdom of the Netherlands has been involved in any way. The May 5 route can be taken throughout the year, but on May 5, 2019 there are various additional attractions to visit at special rates such as museums, the lighthouse and the Oude Jeroen tower.

The interest in the Bunkerdag 2018 was a great success. The Command bunker and its corridors were allowed to receive no less than 1204 visitors, about 25% of whom were younger than 12 years of age.
