With interactive elements you can relive the history of the agriculture of Ameland. The farmers on the island rarely practiced only the farmer profession. It was often in combination with countless of other activities such as: fishing, hunting and beach combing. Game and fish were a welcome addition to the sparse menu, and found beach wood was used for maintenance and/or expansion of their own businesses.
The beachcombers section contains a wide variety of finds on the beach. You also get to know the story of 'Ritskemooi' in a lifelike way in the museum. The Agricultural-Beach combers museum is a 'living museum'. The farm work is carried out in an authentic way, just like back in 1890-1900. The stables include horses, goats, pigs and chickens.
