We have visited the Deltapark with our kids for years since they were small and this year we went back just as a couple and it was still fascinating. We loved the kid focuses activities and attractions like in the whale's belly and the wind tunnels and the other outdoor activities when our kids were small and also the majesty... More

Great place for young and old - play areas for the kids and interesting activities and exhibitions - seal and sea lion shows were fun - also try the boat water slide and the wind tunnel. We went in the Autumn so the water play areas were closed but still found enough to occupy three adults and three small children... More

Delta works are a must see if you visit Holland and want to see more then Amsterdam, shame the outrageous price to enter as it includes an old theme park, work on the fact that the works are off the track so once you get there you will pay to get in. Works impressive, the simulation of the 1953 floods... More

One of the two typical waterwork spots you can visit in Netherlands. Detailed history, chance to went up the dam itself and have a view. Overpriced, not worth if you want a more common pleasure activity

The Delta Works project is an engineering wonder that now protects population and nature in Zeeland. The standout element is the Oosterscheldekering, or storm surge barrier. Driving over this construction with its 62 steel doors doesn't do justice to the whole story and astonishing construction project that cost billions and was so controversial after the 1953 flood disaster. It is... More

This negative review is based on the fact that I only wanted to visit the Delta Works (and I was not interested in the attraction park.), but that is not possible anymore. Perhaps the park is nice, but my critics related that you cannot visit the Delta Works on its own. I wanted my kids to explain about the "watersnood... More

If you would like to know everything about the Delta Works in Zeeland, this is the place to go. Very informative movies about the floods in 1953 and what the Dutch did to make sure this never happens again! It is worth paying the extra 3 euro for the 45 minute boat trip so you can see the Delta Works... More

I read somewhere that when driving from Amsterdam to Brugge this would be a must stop in the scenic way when opting not to take the highway. And I agree that the deltas are worth the detour if you're not in a hurry. However the park was not what I expected. I thought it would be a historical site mainly... More

It is 7 euros just to park and you get nothing for it. Once you are through the barrier you have to pay and cannot see whether you wish to visit the attraction. Free parking is available at the oyster farm/restaurant and all around the delta project. Even if you want to visit the attraction park close by and save... More
