Museum De Cruquius is housed in the former pumping station Cruquius, that was used between 1848 and 1852 for the reclamation of the Haarlemmermeer. The museum is dedicated to the industrial history. The collection consists of steam engines, models of windmills, polder architectural models and old maps, that illustrate 2000 years of fighting against water. In addition, there is an architectural model that illustrates what the Netherlands would look like without dykes.
