  • This is a small, mainly volunteer-run museum which explains how Holland reclaimed land from the sea in the 18th / 19th centuries and protected it from further inundation. For anyone interested in...

  • Exciting place. There are some examples of historical steam powered machines and the most important exhibit - huge water pump that was powered by steam. It's a masterpiece of engineering. What amazed me the most is that it still works. Of course nowadays the mechanism is driven by electric motors but it's still looks amazing and even frighteningly. Thanks a lot for the tour and demonstration.
  • Wonderful - we visited with 3 young children and we all had a fantastic time. A very personal tour was given which our eldest son who is 6 loved - he even got to press the buttons which start the main pump. The employees are very passionate and kind. A fantastic 2 hours
