Caisson 3: Reconstruction
The reconstruction after the Flood started immediately. Work was in progress everywhere: dykes, houses, agricultural land, the infrastructure, so that the flooded region could quickly be made habitable. Wooden pre-fab houses were donated by several countries; one of these (a gift from Denmark) stood in this region and has now been rebuilt in caisson 3.
Go into this house and watch and hear the story of the Flood: historic film footage, interviews, television programmes and documentaries. Next to the house are the machines and equipment used to reconstruct the dykes. The last part of the exhibition in caisson 3 links the fifties with the present: our changing society, the
modernization of daily life and the construction of the Delta project.
