The Abel Tasman Museum in Lutjegast

Museum and Meeting place in Tasman's Hometown

The Abel Tasman Museum is an international meeting place in Tasman's hometown Lutjegast. It has a nice collection of old maps, two models of Tasman's ships, artefacts of the various cultures the expedition met and a wide range of books. This website is also an initiative of the museum. It strives to keep visitors updated on books on Tasman and links to educational materials, games and the Abel Tasman Art Prize.

Tasman 375

The Abel Tasman Museum commemorates the 375th anniversary of the 1642-1643 and 1644 expeditions by a 3-year project 'Tasman 375'. Part of this project are travelling exhibitions like 'Abel Tasman. Welkom aan boord' (Abel Tasman. Welcome aboard) that is now on display at the Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum. 

The museum regularly receives national and international historians and researchers, like Graham Anderson on the video below.
