Sights and museums

The Watersnoodmuseum in Ouwerkerk is very impressive. Located in caissons that were used to seal the breaches in the dikes, the museum tells the story of how the Flood was able to happen and shines a light on the reconstruction effort, the Delta Works, and the future.

In Middelburg you will find the Zeeuws Museum, which focuses on the region’s traditional garb as well as its fashion, art, history, archaeology, and more. Tapestries from the 16th century depict the history of naval battles through embroidered images. The Stadhuis Museum in Zierikzee is located in the former town hall (stadhuis in Dutch) and tells the story of this town of monuments and the surrounding area.

On the Boulevard in Vlissingen, you can see the statue of Michiel de Ruyter, a famous 17th-century admiral. You will pass by it if you take the Solar Train for a short trip through Vlissingen in the summer. The Solar Train gets its name from the fact that its electric engines are powered by solar panels.

For centuries, the cosmopolitan beach town of Domburg has been a popular summer destination among the nobility. The beaches are renowned for the healing powers that the sea water is said to have there. Domburg has always drawn painters from far and wide because of the beauty of its light. Jan Toorop and Piet Mondrian are just two of the many famous artists who have worked in Domburg.

And then, of course, there is the legend of the Flying Dutchman. The name refers both to the ship and its captain. According to the legend, this Zeeland captain sailed out in his ship, headed for the East Indies. The ship ran into stormy weather off the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa and was lost. At that point, the captain sold his soul to the devil, and as a result the ship and its captain still wander the oceans…
