In the National Dutch Towage Museum the visitor can test his ability how to manoeuver on a ship simulator. Thanks to one of our sponsors, the firm Alphatron Marine BV at Rotterdam, we are able to offer this device to the public. The simulator consists of the professional version of Ship Simulator 2008 from VSTEP, three screens, a steering tiller and motor handle to operate the Furie and the Elbe, two well known tugs in the museum harbour of Maassluis. On the photo the simulator is to be seen. (click to enlarge).
The museum also offers another computer with the ordinary pc version of Ship Simulator 2008. This program is for sale in the museum shop.
On the quiz computer children as well as adults can test their knowledge of shipping and navigation.
