The GeoExperience is partly inside and partly outside. A visit to GeoFort takes around 4 hours and is fun for kids (6+) as well as parents.

In the different GeoExperience rooms you can explore various components within the theme cartography and navigation. Experience the force of an earthquake with Earthquake Shake, make your own compass and discover how the earth has changed throughout time with the 4D globe.

Outside
GeoFort is situated at a fortress island. The fortress on itself is already one big playground! Outside you will also find an intelligent maze, a ferry to small NL in the canal and different quests and scavenger hunts (only available in Dutch). There are also several smartphone games and tours that you can do using your smartphone.
