Scheepvaartmuseum

National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam

In the warehouse of ’s Lands Zeemagazijn (National Sea Stockroom) of 1656 you find the completely modernized Scheepvaartmuseum (National Maritime Museum) at no more than 5 minutes away from the Central Station in Amsterdam.

The museum explains in a very interactive and extensive way the relationship of the Netherlands and specifically Amsterdam with the sea. From meeting key historical figures from the Golden Century down to a making a virtual sea trip, you’re sure to have a great time.

Of course the replica of the VOC ship Amsterdam is what attracts most attention when walking up to the museum, so be sure to come on board and imagine the exiting voyages made with the original.
