We have no children and don't often go to zoos or aquariums, partially due to humane-treatment-of-animals issues. We did go to Ecomare and loved it. It's a bit expensive, yes, but we figure part of the price goes towards animal rescue/care operations. The seals were...More

We went on a busy Saturday but we still had a great time and could find good spots to watch the feeding of the seals. There are a lot of other things to see and do besides the seals. Definitely recommend this for families.

On Texel is nio much to do in Winter time so Ecomare was just a nice little change next to enjoying nature. Nice little museum and care center for seals. A bit more for children, but nice idea doing something for the environment too.

We timed our visit so that we can catch both the dolphin and the seals demonstrations/feedings. Between those events, we visited the museum and aquarium and learned a lot about the ecology and history of the area. The museum is very modern, with many interactive...More

A wide range of expositions, all related to the island and its habitants. Worthwhile to visit when being in Texel

Nice little sea museum with a busy aquarium and sea-lions to see. This activity should be planned on a rainy day but of course can be appreciated with good weather :-)
