Five Stars for the Deltaworks (only) - it's the rest of the Venue that disappoints

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... read more

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

Very interesting information about the delta works. Seal show and aquarium okay but could have been better. Best bit was going inside the delta works and seeing the exhibit and gates.

The Storm Barriers at Deltapark have a very important position in the Dutch history. However, the park itself is not that value for money I believe. Ticket prices are high. Its not very easily accessible by Public Transport (there is a bus which stops at this part, however frequency is lower and also, the walk from Bus Stop to the... More

We've mixed feelings about this place. It offers a few attractions but they're all rather average. Aquarium is one of the smallest I've seen, see lions or seals shows are pretty short, in small pools and not spectacular. It's a nice area to walk outside and take children on their playground, but this you could do anywhere in Zeeland without... More

I went to Neeltje Jans with my 2 sons aged 8 and 10 during the Autumn break. We all speak and read Dutch and were really looking forward to the day out. As the Netherlands is our adopted home country, we were eager to learn about the Delta works and the Osterschelde, especially since both children study it in school.... More

I don't get why people rate this so bad. It's old beacause it's a history and it has to be exactly like that. I was amazed about delta history and MASSIVE costs of that work. Pet Shows were amazing, boat trip for only 2,5E was very very fine! Of course, there is a paid parking for 7E but tickets are... More
