National Maritime Museum

The National Maritime Museum Amsterdam

Dutch naval history comes to life at the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam (Scheepvaartmuseum in Dutch). See maps, navigation instruments, paintings, artifacts and much more things that are connected to living on a ship in the many exhibitions. The museum is housed in an impressive building near Amsterdam Central Station. The historic building dates back to 1656 and the courtyard has been upgraded with a beautiful glass ceiling with an elaborate design of a compass rose.

See a VOC-ship from the inside

Probably the most impressive piece of the museum is not found inside but outside the museum. It is the full-size replica of VOC-ship the Amsterdam, an 18th-century cargo ship that shipwrecked on its way to the East Indies. See where and how the crew slept, take a look at the cannons from up close and feel what it would have been like to live on a ship. Entrance to the ship is included in your ticket.
