The Maritime Museum Rotterdam opens the Offshore Experience, a challenging search at sea for energy from oil, gas and wind. You can experience what it is like at sea and at a depth of three kilometres underwater, where you can see for yourselves how drillers, crane drivers, wind turbine specialists and helicopter pilots manage to do their spectacular jobs on the open sea. And you can help think about tomorrow’s energy sources. The exhibition is the first experience in the Netherlands about a sector in which the country is a big player - Holland’s modern-day maritime prowess.
In the Offshore Experience, young and adult visitors go on a challenging search at sea for energy. Wearing a safety vest and a helmet, you’ll think you’re on board an offshore construction in the middle of the sea.
