At Miramar Zeemuseum, a natural history museum in Vledder, you can discover the remarkable story of miss Warners and learn all about the whale in our temporary exhibition. We offer all kinds of activities for children in and around the museum. This makes Miramar a unique location for a surprising day out with the family.
