Nieuw Land Poldermuseum (Museum of the Polders)
This museum has a permanent exhibition on the engineering works of the Zuiderzee. The history of the fight against the water and living with the water is told there with the aid of historic films, sound tapes, models and interactive computer programmes. As well as fishing, trade and the floods, the geological evolution and the old cultures are described there. A large section is dedicated to the construction of the dykes, to the draining of the new polders and their first inhabitants.
