The exhibits are old and dated. There is no cohesion between the exhibits which are haphazardly strewn in one hall. Some of the exhibits have running water, but have missing elements or other parts and the visitor is left to discover on his own that...More

Boring for children’s under 6 years old. I expected that it was interactive, too much information on screens.

Even with a low boredom threshold I was out of this in minutes. I'm sure it was fun and worthy for kids with stuff on water resources, waste etc. Text primarily in Dutch.

The movie about water was nice and the set up of all the attractions was certainly appaeling for kids and their families. For us as an adult couple less attractive.

We went to this museum with a bunch of kids and they had the time of their life. They learn all kinds of things about using water in the correct way.

The Netherlands ought to have a water museum, and here it is! It seemed aimed at children for the most part. I think the most interesting parts are where they show some equipment for filtering/cleaning water, and some pump/fountain operating based on waterpower. For these...More

This museum is located near the city centre, trainstation but also a nice park. It tells more about water and all what is possible. Nice education part for children, learning by doing.
