About the museum

The story of the Netherlands is the story of water. For this nation, water was a bitter enemy, but water was also a source of trade and prosperity. Batavialand brings the struggle of the Dutch against water to life. It tells the story of land reclamation and dyke construction, but also of the voyages of discovery, overseas trade, and the specialist knowledge of shipbuilding and water management that the Netherlands exports. A 7,000-year history of life on the edge between land and water can be heard, seen, and experienced right here in Batavialand!

    werkt niet fijn. je bent de heletijd maar bezig met je mobiel en de helft van de mooie dingen zullen je ontgaan. er moet een betere route komen met een kloppende volgorde van de verhalen die je te horen krijgt.
