It is not a very large museum but it is very interesting, it tells the story of how a huge lake became a living area for a whole community. Interesting it is 4.5 meters below sea level. Nice collection of historic items.

As museums go, worth a visit as it shows how the area was drained and developed. Not on a must see list by any means.
