KAAP SKIL MUSEUM

kaap skil

The days of creating boring museums are long gone. Cities, curators and architects are increasingly teaming up to plan exciting institutions for visitors. And throughout the world, it feels like each opening raises the bar a little more. The range of topics is wider and the buildings housing these ideas are fascinating. One example is the recent opening of the Kaap Skil – Maritime and Beachcombers Museum – on the Dutch island of Textel. Designed by Mecanoo Architects, it houses artifacts from the 1700s capturing the history of the island when ships from the Dutch East India Company were sailing off to the Orient in search of spices. We have a few pics posted below.
