  • Incredibly interesting and heartbreaking. This museum really drew us in to the story of what happened in 1953 when the dykes were breached and the long lasting impact of this on the areas affected...

  • I lived in the Netherlands for 22 years and had read about the water disatster and had heard about it from collegues, but nothing prepares you for the experience of this museum. I always just thought....  more

  • A lot of care went into curating not only information about the power of the water and the importance or the dikes, but creating a nice memorial that not only honors those who died in 1954 but preserves their stories. There was a lot of video catalogs of interviews of those that were affected as well as footage of when it happened. Each of the Caissons showcases are unique and offers something for everyone. Movies, stories, artistic interpretations, and modern games. A great visit!
  • The museum is very good with alot of stores to tell. It mainly discusses the great flood in Zeeland, and the recovery after this catastrophe. It contains 4 cassions first for the disaster, second for describing people's emotions and the third for the recovery plan. Finally, the last one for the future plans. I highly recommend taking a tour guide with audio.
