A wonder of the modern world according to engineers, the Delta Works – or Deltawerken in Dutch – is a series of dams, sluices, levees, dikes and a storm-surge barrier designed to protect the Netherlands from rising storm water. Following the deadly North Sea Flood in 1953, the Delta Works Commission was launched to find a solution to the danger of rising sea levels. Despite research and planning beginning in the 1950s, the 13 parts of the Delta Works in the province of Zeeland took around 50 years to finish.

The whole family enjoyed the trip to Zeeuws Museum. It has a really wide ranging mix, interestingly curated. Loved the display and explanations on the local costume, the modern work interspersed with the historic. Interesting building conversion and lovely helpful staff. Not too large for our impatient teenager. Shop was a hit too..we've not found a use for our Zeeland buttons yet. We visited in August 2019..just a little late with review and it won't let me input that date below! Also good for the showery day.

Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed some of the objects we have on display at the moment. We believe you are correct that not all our objects are of the highest quality and we show them anyway because we think they are part of the story of Zeeland. We would like to hear your opinion on the way the objects fit into the story and what objects you would like to see more of.

A good place to go on a rainy Sunday afternoon. We visit the museum with our kids (5 & 9) and surprisingly they loved it.

Well done museum, interesting "appetizers" to learn more about Zeeland and the historical structural changes (ups and downs, changing landscapes, people, ...). This is not a big comprehensive exhibition so best to visit at the beginning of your stay in Zeeland and gain inspiration what to look out for. (E.g. stand in the hall with the huge battle tapestries and afterwards when you visit the original sites try to imagine there was once major sea warfare!)

We visited the Zeeuws Museum in August of 2019. They make excellent use of the spaces the have available. I especially love their “Attic Exhibit” where you explored huge packing crates the made me think of what the Dutch East India Company’s factors sent or brought home from the far corners of the world. The exhibit of the magnificent tapestries of the War for Independence and De Riter’s victories over the British in the Dutch-Anglo Wars of the 17th Century. These tapestries are must see when you visit the Netherlands. If you are into fabric artistry you have to visit the Zeeuws Museum in Middleburg, Zeeland, Netherlands!
