The Watersnood Museum is housed in four caissons used for closing the last gap in the dike. The museum illustrates the flood of February 1, 1953, and what happened afterwards. More than 1,800 people drowned during the flood. The concrete boats are sixty feet long, twenty feet wide and twenty feet high. In the first caisson the story of the disaster is told. The second caisson focusses on the people who died. In caisson 3 the reconstructions after the flood are illustrated and in caisson 4, life with water in the future is discussed.
