In the 17th century, no other country in the world had as many ships as The Netherlands did. Maritime strength led to intercontinental trade blossoming. At the Maritime Museum you’ll find out about the Dutch maritime history in an interactive and personal way. There are also special exhibits for children. In 2011, the Maritime Museum was re-opened after an extensive renovation, but even now the plae exudes a sense of history. The building alone is worth a visit. And naturally then you’ll want to stray on board the VOC ship the “Amsterdam”.
A visit to the Maritime Museum is great in combination with Amsterdam Canal Cruise - 100 Highlights.
Address: Kattenburgerplein 1, Amsterdam
