The Dutch Coastal Light Museum Hoek van Holland is located in the old lighthouse ‘Het Hoge Licht’. The 30-metre high lighthouse was built in 1893 and has six floors. The lighthouse operated until 1974. Now, it houses a permanent exhibition and the history of lighthouses comes to life through models of lighthouses, lamp changers, propane gas lanterns, radio beacons, photographic material, drawings and buoys. From the highest point of the lighthouse you have a magnificent view over Hoek van Holland and the Waterweg.
