THE SHIP REMAINS CLOSED FOR VISITORS.

The AMS Bernisse had big plans because of the relaxation of the Corona measures.
The ship would be opened to visitors, the guides were present and the disinfectants were ordered. Everything was already published on social media.

On closer inspection, also in coordination with the other museum ships, and the problem with the
1.5-meter distance enforcement on board such a small ship as the AMS Bernisse,
it was decided to close the ship for visitors until further notice.

The necessary work on board continues, taking into account the restrictions and as soon as there are possibilities to open up the ship again, that will certainly happen.
The information will be provided as soon as available!
