The Watersnoodmuseum is a Dutch museum about the North Sea flood of 1953. The Flood Museum's collection is divided between the four caissons in Ouwerkerk, each with its own theme. English tours are available and most everything was understandable. Staff and volunteers were very pleasant and helpful. Nice gift shop. Parking lot.
