The museum, shipyard and craft workshops of Batavialand are mostly wheelchair accessible. The Batavia is only accessible by stairs. The Batavia is an authentic reconstruction of a 17th-century East Indiaman, which you can explore down to the actual hold. Please be mindful of the small passageways and the steep stairs. We have disabled toilets in the museum and at the shipyard. We can book a wheelchair for you on request. Please contact us if you would like this arranged or need any assistance.


Batavialand has lockers available. These can be used with a 50 eurocent coin, which will be returned to you after use.


Dogs and other pets are not allowed inside Batavialand. Active guide dogs and officially trained assistance dogs are allowed.


If you have lost anything, please contact us.
