    The Storm Surge Barrier

    by Nathalie_B Updated Jan 22, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Enjoy walking through the heart of the Storm Surge Barrier. You should visit this contruction inside and outside. Make sure you have your warm jacket with you, it is windy and pretty cold. From the barrier you'll have an amazing view on the water, which "fights" the huge construction.

    3D movie

    With a 3D movie you are in the centre of the action, because of the glasses you have to wear. With this movie you visit waterworld and those who live their. Hmm, i wonder of Jaws still lives there.

    Bottom of the Pijlers

    by sammie Updated Dec 17, 2002

    doors on left

    This is something you won't see on your trip to the Neeltje Jans. The bottom of one of the Pijlers.

    Between these Pijlers is a very big steel seadoor blokkade. (is shown on pict). These doors are between every pijler.

    If there is a big storm, recently 27th Oct. 2002, the doors are closed, so that the water can't come in. This way Schouwen can't be flooded again. Ofcourse the Neeltje Jans has help from other dikes and bridges.

    Exhibition 1953 Flood

    by sammie Updated Feb 18, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1953

    20 hours of north-westerly storm pushed the waters of the North Sea up to a height of 4.20 meters above Amsterdam ordinance zero. This proved too much for the dikes in Zealand. Hundreds of gaps appeared and almost 200,000 hectares were flooded with swirling, salty sea water.
    the exhibition about the 1953 flood at Delta Expo communicates the human experience of the catastrophe.
    The last of many hundreds of breaks in the Zealand dikes was not closed until 6 November 1953 at Ouwerkerk. Phoenix-caissons were used for this purpose. The museum has been established in a highly topical location; in the caissons themselves!

    Seals

    Right behind the entrance building, by the sea beach you'll find the Seal Pool. There are 4 or 5 of them, fat , lazy, and cute animals.They are very friendly and always look for attention (or food?)

    Visit Waterland and the Delta Expo

    by hquittner Written Sep 7, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inside the main pavillion

    Waterland contains the Delta Expo (a separate Tip) as well as a cafeteria, a boat cruise of the Delta Works, and all the fixings to make a full day if one had children in tow: including a water slide, water playground, beach, seals , hurricane machine, selas, a train-ride, aquarium and more! There is a cafeteria too (see Tip). Unfortunately there is only one type of admission--total-- which thus includes Delta, Nature and Fun.

    Study the Delta Exhibit

    The "Delta Expo" consists of documentation, photographs, video pieces, a 3-D fim, fine models and 3 dimensional diagrams of strata etc. This can be supplemented by a long walk to the end of the grounds to the barrier and more important a boat tour which takes 50 minutes and leaves (see your info but at present 1200, 1315,1430 &1545 hours). We unfortunately did not take it (because it was "stormy" and my caretakers get seasick).

    Look at the Delta Works

    The barrier piers and gates
    4 more images

    We did not take the boat cruise but befor we entered Waterland we stopped at the control station area and walked out toward one of the barrier dams (no fee). This allowed us to get a feeling for the remarkable engineering feat that it is. This is a built-up area with a levee(dyke) and modern power capturing windmills that supplement or substitute for other power sources.

    Dam

    A technical masterpiece to prevent Zeeland from storm tides as happend in 1953.

    Also visit the musem with the history and pictures of the great 1953 flood disaster and the simulation of the function of the sluices.
