Museum 't Behouden Huys is dedicated to the history, marine history and culture of Terschelling. The museum illustrates the history of the island and its former inhabitants, with special focus on explorer Willem Barents. In 1596 he got stuck in the ice near Nova Zembla, after which he got through the winter with his crew in the cabin named ‘‘t Behouden Huys‘. The museum has a replica of the cabin.
