  • Very cool Museum, Which offers more than you expect. All about oil drilling in North Sea since 1969 and how the oil got there millions of years ago. 2 little cinemas with films about the life and conflicts of an oil worker family and a artificial dive. Afterwards you can visit the attached restaurant and buy merchandise stuff. 12€ entrance is not cheap but OK
  • Very interesting and interactive. I discover something new every time. Great for all ages from 3 to 93! 😁
