Fort Lisse Museum/Park

The exhibition programme has four basic elements: the fort itself, or at least the part of it that can be visited and is called 'The Cheloni'; Artefacts from the time; Reconstructions and constructions; Digital applications.

Reception
In the reception area you can sign up for the 'Follow the Fox' game, receive or return your game bag, take the required knowledge test, and visit the Lisse Museum shop.
There are four exhibits in the same area.

Presentation of Fort Lisse
This exhibit is an interactive digital application. Using the menu on a touch screen, you can chose subjects to be displayed on a large screen. These tell you about Fort Lisse through diagrams and photographs.

View of the Battle.
You can watch live footage of the action taking place inside the Cheloni, shown on a large screen. Those who can't or don't want to visit the Cheloni, can watch the action here.

The Metaxas Line
This is a very large screen on which the whole of the Metaxas Line construction is shown, through maps and visual aids.
