Expo: Fishing in the past - 500 years of fisheries in Flanders

The NAVIGO-National Fisheries Museum is joining forces with the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom), the abbey museum Ter Duinen and the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) to bring for the first time the story of fisheries in Flanders – from the late Middle Ages to present days. From 1 July 2018 onwards you have to be in Oostduinkerke to follow the dynamic – and sometimes turbulent – course of the Flemish fishery over five centuries. Via hundreds of objects the exposition will bring to life the history of the Flemish fishing business.

More practical information on the expo you can find on the webiste of the NAVIGO museum.
