Expecting more of Delta works

This is more of a fun park than history or museum of the Delta works, the part dedicated to the dykes/levees is small so I am not really sure it was worth the drive to get there... read more

When things to see and do would be better indicated. The park looks and feel like a scattered attraction park on a low budget. The special parts as a walk inside the structure is partly accessible most of the time, no clear indication when and where a guide is present. The entree fee is far out of balance for what... More

First, it's not really so far... 1.25 hours of easy driving from The Hague, closer from Rotterdam, and worth it! What's there? The explanation, both technical and emotional, of The Netherlands continuing fight against the "WaterWolf". Be "there" for the horror of the 1953 flood which launched the project. See the awe-inspiring engineering challenge and the answer which protects the... More

To be inside the bridge of the Delta Park is quite an unforgettable experience. However, there still lack of explanation inside. There are lots of artefacts (like stones, rusty bolts, shells etc) but we do not know from where those are comes from.

Interesting way to see the history of the flooding in the Netherlands and the Delta from a very close up perspective. (Self guided tour inside). The outdoor park is good fun for the younger members of your family as is the Sealion show. Really enjoyed our afternoon there just a little expensive! Give it a try

This is more of a fun park than history or museum of the Delta works, the part dedicated to the dykes/levees is small so I am not really sure it was worth the drive to get there (we drove from Rotterdam). Don't take the boat ride they offer for 3 euro...I thought we would get closer to the dam but... More

Deltapark gives you a real sense of how Zeeland was reclaimed from the sea, and the phenomenal design and effort that went into its construction. There are some moving accounts of the 1953 flood that triggered the Delta Works project told via a 360 degree virtual storm. Lots of other interactive displays as well. Outside there are plenty to keep... More

Some of the exhibits were really well done whilst others felt like they needed some attention. The sealion feeding show was quite interesting, who knew a sealion could get so old and you could train a seagull? The splash made by the sealion is quite minimal so you don't have to worry about getting wet. The whale exhibit was massive... More

This is the perfect museum to explain the simply admirable and awe-striking Delta project all around the Netherlands. You start in an incredible 360 degree virtual storm in 1953 before a cinema and lots of hands on equipment. It is at this point that you can go outside and feel the delta project in all of its glory with another... More

I came here hoping to learn about the Delta works, about its history and construction. Instead for 45 euros for 2 people you get a waterpark, and a show about birds of prey and a large exhibit about mussels. In one small corner of the building there is an 8 minute dramatization of the 1953 flood, an old film with... More

Was not sure what to expect as back home there is not much on the floods at all. However it was really impressive! All 4 of us (including a 14 & 19 yr old) all enjoyed our time here. There was so much information and things to look at. They had a wall with everyone's name and age carved onto... More
