Countless years of interacting with water on a day to day basis has led to so much of Dutch history revolving around the sea! From trade within Europe to navigating the globe, even though they hailed from a tiny country, Dutch sailors achieved incredible feats. Explore over five centuries of history in the National Maritime Museum, an interactive center devoted to the Netherlands’ explorations at sea. Marvel at historical objects such as antique weapons, maps, models of ships, and paintings. You can even board a life-size replica of ‘The Amsterdam,’ an 18th-century ship that sank in the English Channel while it was en route to the East Indies! Discover this and so much more when you visit the National Maritime Museum in Amsterdam.
Occupying the former arsenal of the Admiralty of Amsterdam, even the building the National Maritime Museum is housed in is historical itself! Experience the past adventures of sailors as they explored the high seas, and learn about what life was like on a ship in past centuries without actually having to set sail yourself!
