Biesbosch MuseumEiland – Collection

In the heart of the Biesbosch nature preserve is where you’ll find the Biesbosch Museum Eiland. Here you can explore the dynamic history of this unique freshwater tidal area.

The history of the Biesbosch

In the museum, you can dive into the history of the Biesbosch. Humans have played a major role in the Biesbosch’s development over time. Here you’ll discover how people handled the water, created polders, and used nature for their own ends. Explore how people have always lived and worked differently in the Biesbosch, and what nature and water gave to them. While locals first depended on fisheries, it later changed to agriculture and willow and reed cultivation. Today, the Biesbosch serves as a water collection and recreation area.

Biesbosch MuseumEiland

On the Biesbosch MuseumEiland, you’ll find a scale model of the Biesbosch, complete with polders, dykes and streams. Here you’ll learn all about how different water levels influence nature, and how you can use sluices and valves to change those levels. You can also go for a beautiful walk or a cruise on which you can enjoy the Biesbosch itself and experience the effect of the tides.
