History Museum
“THE DELTA WORKS ARE FAMOUS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD… More than half of the Netherlands lies below sea level. The Delta Works were built to keep everyone safe and to prevent a recurrence of the 1953 flood disaster. You can relive history at Deltapark Neeltje Jans: from the flood disaster to the construction of the Delta Works. Exhibitions, films and a visit to the storm surge barrier itself will give you an impression of the stupendous power of water. People come to view the storm surge barrier from as far away as America.”

“Als je in Vlissingen op bezoek bent, dan mag je zeker de boulevard niet overslaan. De reden waarom wij in Vlissingen wonen is omdat je nergens anders zoveel en zo dichtbij schepen voorbij ziet komen. En dat maakt de boulevard daarom één van de meest unieke boulevards in Nederland. Wij zijn er dan ook zeker minimaal 1 keer per week te vinden! If you're visiting Vlissingen, you should definitely not miss the boulevard. The reason that we live here is because nowhere else in The Netherlands the ships pass so close near the boulevard. And that makes the promenade therefore one of the most unique avenues in the Netherlands. For that reason we go there least 1 time per week !”

“You can walk in nature park of Het Verdonken Land van Saefthinge. It's a nature park that is flooded twice a day by the tide. There is a short route about the plankier. There you can walk without a guide. If you really want to enjoy the park , a guide is required. Without guide you are so lost and you have a big problem when the water rises. For information, visit the Saefthinge Discovery Center Visitor Center. There is a small museum with a lot of experience for children. At the end of your trip in the bark and swamp you will have to eat and drink at Café Het Verdronken land in Emmadorp.”
