For those that love the old technique of steam engines and big water pumps this is a great visit. The newly built visitor center offers a very good insight into the workings an history of this monument.

This is a world class world heritage site. It is like a working museum, having been built nearly 100 years ago. But our guide who was fabulous kept reminding me that it was not a museum as it still is the pump of last resort...More

This is an impressive working monument highlighting the centuries-long Dutch struggle against the flooding. It is not well set up for non-Dutch speakers, though. There is a 4-minute intro movie with English subtitles that runs too quick to make sense of; then, there is a...More
