Small exhibition of the Delta works, inside an expensive theme park

I came to the Delta park, because I was interested in seeing the Oosterschelde storm surge barrier and the exhibition about the Delta works. In order to see it, one has to... read more

Imagine living the moment having a wall of water break through the Dike in the Netherlands in 1952! The Deltapark will take you through film footage of the past to the design and construction of the dike and to the affect it has on the country of today. A wonderful experience of Dutch Strength! You can also visit the aquariums,... More

I came to the Delta park, because I was interested in seeing the Oosterschelde storm surge barrier and the exhibition about the Delta works. In order to see it, one has to visit the Delta park Neeltje Jans theme park, and pay entrance to that, 22 Euro. The exhibition, is rather small, and a little old fashioned, but interesting enough,...

Great story to be told here but extremely overpriced for what it is. The water park and sea animal components seem like a sore afterthought designed only to drive more traffic into the park and add to the sleepy vibe its staff already conveyed to you at the door. We walked out of one of the Ocean films because it... More

The Delta Works is such an important and impressive piece of engineering for the Netherlands that you would expect the Neeltje Jans to be a state-of-the-art Family Park. Instead it's an utter disappointment! I have no idea how some people can rate this park three or even four stars. While the waterpark and aquarium may not be the worst, they... More

We were passing by early in the morning when the park was still closed so we did not enter. But we were amazed by the works that had been done here. Never seen something like that before.

First timer for us in this part of the country and we were amazed with the structure built for resolving flooding issues. The park was interesting with the various videos & information on the development of the Deltaworks structure. The all inclusive price was reasonably expensive, however the experince & family venue was well worth the visit. We had lunch... More

The engineering is amazing. Start in the visitor center with the movie then head out to the pier. The sea lions are super cute. There are a lot of play areas for the young ones.

The venue overall is just so so - but forget the seals/aquarium and boat trips and head and focus on the vast Deltaworks and you'll love it. Everything is expensive - but restrooms are clean (and free). There is a great intro film explaining the Deltaworks and it's key role in the entire flood control system of The Netherlands -... More

Off course a day out with the family costs money. Parking, entrance, a sandwich, fuel etc etc. But this park is worth it. Especially on a sunny and windy day where you can witness the forces of nature. Plenty to do for young children. Sealions, Aquarium, a beach, Windtunnel and off course a visit inside one of the pillars. Good... More
