Flavoland, Lelystad, New Land Museum

I will be in the Netherlands in two weeks, and I want to go to Lelystad to see the Batavia, the New Lands/polder museum.
I can easily leave from AMS, The Haague, or Rotterdam train station. Once I get to Lelystad is there a bus to get to the locations? Which train station might be best to use.

Visiting the Batavia shipyard is certainly what I can recommend. If of interest in Amsterdam near the maritime museum you can also visit “De Amsterdam”, another replica from the same period.
South of Lelystad in Bunschoten-Spakenburg is a shipyard still operational, building and repairing historical mainly flatbottom boats for use in shallow water. Hard to say if they welcome visitors, travelling time 1 hour with public transport from Amsterdam. Website only in Dutch: email:
