Sincfala, Museum of the Zwinstreek (Zwin region, Knokke-Heist)

Back to overview

In the visitor centre, discover the exciting and turbulent history of the Zwin region spanning 2000 years: the land reclamation, a unique scale model of the harbour town of Sluis in around 1400, the wars in the region, the emergence of Duinbergen and Het Zoute, the development of tourism.

In the old school (1899), you learn all about the hard life of the fishermen and their families. Taste the special folk culture. Sit in the school benches.

In the museum garden, go on board the Jessica, a shrimp boat from the 1930s.

For children
