Scheepvaart Museum

The Scheepvaart Museum is the Netherlands Maritime Museum, located on Amsterdam's harbor in the National Naval Depot, a former arsenal of the Dutch Navy that is over 300 years old.

The collection within tells the story of the maritime past of the Netherlands. Outside the Museum is a permanent berth for a replica of the Dutch East Indiaman "Amsterdam," which is great fun to explore with guides in period costumes telling you about life aboard ship in the old days.

If you've got a binnacle at home, or a ship's bell mounted somewhere, you'd be happy to spend hours wandering through this place. It's fun even if you don't have one.
