On the shipyard there are several handcrafts still active and can be visited. A visit to the Bataviawerf is a nice daytrip for the whole family. less

Visitors to the museum can get a glimpse at the world of the prehistoric Swifterbant people, a group of hunters, fishermen and gatherers who lived here six thousand years ago.The IJssel Lake (IJsselmeer) was formerly the Zuiderzee and served as an indispensable link in a variety of transport networks, where many a ship went down with all hands in the stormy billows. An archaeological treasure trove was unearthed when the Zuiderzee was reclaimed, making Flevoland the largest ship cemetery on dry land anywhere in the world.Of course, the museum's central theme is the largest reclamation project ever: the Zuiderzee Project. The project originated on the drawing board of Cornelis Lely and was carried out by the polder workers. How do you go about developing newly reclaimed land and what will the future hold for this area?There's also plenty for children to do at Nieuw Land: a special children's presentation allows them to step into the shoes of a dyke builder, archaeologist or lockkeeper. Fun experiments and games teach them all about one of the key challenges facing the Netherlands throughout its history: water management.Texts of the permanent exhibitions are available in English, French and German.Nieuw Land also holds the archives of the province of Flevoland. The tens of thousands of photographs, documents, maps, drawings and archaeological finds stored here lay the foundation of everything we know about the Zuiderzee Project. The collection in storage presents the long history of Flevoland: starting with prehistoric times and moving through the turbulent waves of the Zuiderzee to the new land that was created with the unique Zuiderzee Project.Study centreNieuw Land is also a research centre. Admission is free for visitors of the study centre, which offers a specialised library in which to study the various archives and collections. Nieuw Land also conducts its own research, collaborating with various Dutch universities. The results are published and frequently provide material for exhibitions and educational programmes. less
