Nederlands VVestingmuseum (Dutch Fortress Museum)

Interesting
The five bunkers one of which has six bastions (Turfpoort) have been converted into a museum. Canons, weapons, uniforms, engravings and an audiovisual presentation illustrate the lively history of the town. The high points of the visit are the listening corridor (61m long) designed to listen to the enemy at night and the demonstrations of canon fire.
