Museumship Mercuur

Would you like to find out how a real marine ship looks like from the inside? This is possible in the Hr. Ms. Mercuur Ship. This former American US Navy ship was used as a mine sweeper in the second world war.  It played an important roll in getting The Netherlands completely mine free.
Sinds 1993 the schip is inactive, but can be visited by the public. A visit to the marine ship can perfectly be combined with a trip to the fish auction or to the light house. Look for a parking spot? Check out all the parking Scheveningen has to offer.
