  • We should have visited this museum earlier. I captures the flooding event from various perspectives in a comprehensive way, also for children; recently my oldest told me that he wanted to go again. Some of the drama's that happened have been visualised there in a way that in few occasions brought tears to my eyes. We will go again.
  • An excellent museum. The following is from their website: in 1953, the Dutch were once again confronted with the power of the sea. The Watersnoodmuseum is a Dutch museum about the North Sea flood of 1953. The Flood Museum's collection is divided between the four caissons in Ouwerkerk, each with its own theme. English tours are available and most everything was understandable. Staff and volunteers were very pleasant and helpful. Nice gift shop. Parking lot.
  • Must visit!! Super interesting .good for kids too
  • Really nice but touching museum about the flood of 1953. Some of the exhibits are really heavy to witness, others are fun and interactive. It's a must see when nearby. The staff was friendly and helpful.
