More about Frederiksdorp
At Frederiksdorp you can visit the North Commewijne Story Museum, among other things. The story museum is located in the historic director’s house of Plantation Frederiksdorp -that dates back to 1760- and offers a collection of previously unrecorded personal stories of older and younger residents of the district. The stories are presented in a unique, interactive and colorful way. Many stories have also been recorded and can be listened to either through museum props or via your phone.
For the real lovers of history and adventure, there is the educational and interactive history trail through the forest that follows the life of Boni, the legendary 18th-century freedom fighter who fought against the colonial regime. The Boni Trail tells the story of Surinamese heroes during the plantation’s dark history: not from the narrative of victimhood, but from the fight against slavery.
From Frederiksdorp you leave on foot, by bike or by boat to explore the district of Commewijne. A district that is rich in history, culture, biodiversity, and adventure. Learn about the region’s rich history, meet friendly locals from the surrounding villages and experience the many cultures and traditions.
Go on magical cruises through the wetlands and discover the hidden lotus valley, visit various other museums such as the Museum Bakkie or the Fort Nieuw-Amsterdam, cycle eastwards past various plantations, sluices and canals, and sail to the Matapica beach at sunset to see giant sea turtles nesting in the shores, a unique natural phenomenon that can only be seen in few places in the world.
