Waterwijs

Saturday 20 July 2024

This year the Zuiderzee Museum is all about water. While clean drinking water always flows from the tap, things used to be different for residents around the Zuiderzee. Clean water was scarce and therefore people used it sparingly. What can we learn from them about carefully handling our own drinking water?

From 𝟭𝟳 𝗳𝗲𝗯𝗿𝘂𝗮𝗿𝗶 you can discover the indoor museum in the 𝘁𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗼𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗪𝗮 Learn more about water use then and now. View the historical objects and contemporary counterparts: from wash basin and toilet bowl to recycled shower and water-saving toilet. Go through the dilemmas in the choice maze and take a selfie in the life-size 1.5 meter water pipe! The outdoor museum will open from March 29 and you can follow an audio series along historic water locations and listen to stories about the village well and the folding flume. Along the way you will find the water lab, where children can do experiments, and four water works of art: for example, step under the Water Gate or climb the special lookout tower.
