The Flood Museum

Ouwerkerk The Netherlands

The Flood Museum in Ouwerkerk The Netherlands tells it all: the tragic events of 1953, the emotions, the reconstruction and how we live with water, now and in the future. The caissons of the museum have been recently renewed. First only one caisson was used, since april 2009 all four are in use. Look at the introduction film for visitors, see instructions for English subtitles. Bottom right click subtitles on -settings – auto translate- find English.

  • Thanks for publishing this historic page. We definately were not alone on that dreadful night, Jan. 31st. 1953. Interesting to see the massive new protective system that the Dutch set about installing following the disaster.!! Must have been one “huge” construction project. Gerald Hudson
