Offshore Experience

Event Details

  • The 17th of December, the Maritime Museum Rotterdam is opening the Offshore Experience, a challenging search at sea for energy from oil, gas and wind. You can experience what it is like at sea and at a depth of three kilometres underwater, where you can see for yourselves how drillers, crane drivers, wind turbine specialists and helicopter pilots manage to do their spectacular jobs on the open sea. And you can help think about tomorrow’s energy sources. The exhibition is the first experience in the Netherlands about a sector in which the country is a big player - Holland’s modern-day maritime prowess.

    Experience what it is like at sea and 3 km below the surface
    In the Offshore Experience, young and adult visitors go on a challenging search at sea for energy. Wearing a safety vest and a helmet, you'll think you're on board an offshore construction in the middle of the sea. A 360° film projection stimulates the senses. Ships come and go and helicopters land. Models of the newest and most advanced offshore ships, built specifically for the exhibition, demonstrate their capabilities. Offshore employees offer a glimpse into their lives at sea and there are simulations so that you can experience for themselves how drillers, crane drivers, wind turbine specialists and helicopter pilots manage to do their spectacular jobs on the open sea, in a constant battle with the elements.


    A lift takes you down to a mysterious undersea world, from just below the surface to a depth of 3 km. The adventure ends in the future. Vote for the best sustainable idea for producing energy at sea. Will it have been suggested by a professional offshore engineer or by an eight-year-old primary school pupil?
