The Tower of Goedereede is a gray square brick church tower in the historic town Goedereede. The tower was built between 1467 and 1512. From 1552 to 1912, the tower served as a lighthouse for shipping. With the support of the local council, the "Goereese Community Foundation" build a museum in the tower.
The collection includes excavated pottery (in Goedereede) and objects that relate to the costumes of the former on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee. The museum also has some antique ship models and a continuous PowerPoint presentation with historical photos of the island. Also on the attic you can visit the largest carillon in the Netherlands. From the roof of the tower you has a magnificent view over the historic town of Goedereede, the island and the area (Haringvliet, Grevelingenmeer and North Sea).
