GeoFort is an interactive science center located on an intriguing fort in the New Dutch Waterline. Everything in the science center revolves around the planet Earth. Three themes are central: climate, geodesign, and big data. Experience these themes in the GeoExperience, the 'intelligent' maze, and the Bat Trail playground.

GeoFort is part of the New Dutch Waterline. The line was meant to protect the wealthy west from enemies coming from the east. Pieces of land were flooded up to knee height. This prevented the enemy from attacking the Netherlands by boat or on foot. Water became the most important weapon for the Netherlands.

Since June 2012, GeoFort has been open on weekends and holidays for families. Experience the power of spatial thinking at GeoFort. Visit the interactive children's museum GeoFort where everything revolves around the Earth or dine in the restaurant.
