After an eight month period of renovation, the biesbosch museum in the Netherlands has reopened. Reconstruction was carried out by the Studio Marco Vermeulen. Water safety was the key reason for the development of the Biesbosch Museum Island. As part of a national water safety programme, the 4450-hectare Noordwaard polder has been turned into a water-retention area. In the first three months since the reopening, no fewer than 30,000 people visited the complex! The new permanent exhibition offers a rich overview of the history of the Biesbosch, the culture and the collection of the museum. The unique story of the Biesbosch is displayed in seven pavilions, covering its history from the Elizabeth Flood of 1421 to its current status as a recreational area. The residents, economy, crafts and nature are displayed in multimedia spaces that stimulate all senses. Location: Bezoekerscentrum Biesbosch-Museumpad, 3313 Dordrecht, Netherlands
