The national Maritime Museum, (or in Dutch Scheepvaartmuseum) is best known for its life-size VOC-replica ship docked at the museum. It’s great fun for kids and adults to run around on board the 17the century vessel. Recently, this experience has got even better with the added virtual reality experience. The many interactive features in the Maritime museum and the architecture of the old navy warehouse makes exploring the long naval history of Holland a fun and interesting experience.
The Maritime Museum in Amsterdam is located at an old naval warehouse. For centuries, the military navy of Amsterdam kept its canons, ropes and supplies in this huge building. In the middle is a specious courtyard. This courtyard is now roofed with a spectacular glass ceiling. The ceiling is decorated with 868 individually adjustable LED lights. The colourful light show is great (and free) to watch after sun set (only applicable in winter).
