Always wanted to know more about the history of maritime life and shipbuilding? Visit the Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum (Northern Maritime Museum) in Groningen!
What to expect? With an extensive collection of pictures, archives, ship models and parts really anything that can be related to ships and the north of the Netherlands.
For context, Groningen used to be a central point in maritime life during the late middle ages due to waterways coming together and thanks to the Stapelrecht (Staple right, saying that goods transported past a city should first be stored and offered for sale in that city) trade further developed. In short, a fascinating piece of history in the heart of the city Groningen.
