Dike and War museum Polderhuis

History comes to life in the Polderhuis museum. From life on Walcheren in the Iron Age, through the Roman Empire, the time of the Vikings and the Golden Age, to the years of World War 2 with the bombing, the devastation and the reconstruction of Westkapelle.
Stroll through history, along interesting objects and replicas, watch photos and videos and take a look at the sea and the dike from the observation tower.

The Observation Tower

Life and the influence of the sea in Westkapelle are depicted in the museum. Looking out from the observation tower, it is clearly visible how near the village lies to the sea, separated only by the impressive dike. On clear bright days you can see Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, a part of the province of Zeeland, across the Schelde River. The Observation Tower can only be accessed through the museum.
