New Land Heritage Centre

The collections of Nieuw Land include six thousand year old archaeological finds from the days when Flevoland was still an extensive marshland. A great deal has been preserved from later periods also. The collections of Nieuw Land are really unique because of their wealth of information about the Zuyder Zee Project, the closure and reclamation of the Zuyder Zee and the development of 165,000 ha. new land. Archives with thousands of documents, photographs, films and soundtracks, implements, equipment, engravings and paintings are evidence of this largest ever land reclamation project.
