My husband was a Marine. I'm a landlubber and arranged for us to go to this museum to please him. I had a wonderful time too. My favorite was the royal "barge" which was all white, grey and gold gilt - even the oars. The...More
No need to be a marine fan to come and visit. Really interesting learnings on Dutch marine, tools and other historical highlights! The ´Amsterdam’ vessel, rebuilt in less than a year, is amazing. You feel like being back 400 years ago. And many small games...More
One of our main stops in Amsterdam was the Nation Maritime Museum. Holland had a rich history for hundreds of years as a global maritime power and this museum does a good job of illustrated that history. The highlight for me was the replica ship.
Huge museum with much of interest. I say definitely a day's worth because we only had part of an afternoon there and it was nowhere near enough time. It's within easy walking distance of the Centraal railway station.
There's a large replica of an East...More

A visit to Amsterdam’s Eastern Docklands presents the opportunity to marvel at its many modern architectural masterpieces like the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam and the beguiling Python Bridge while taking in its scenic waterfront with its trendy assortment of cafés, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Here in this post-industrial (though in some parts still very much presently industrial) neighborhood, you’ll find a
smart selection of cool galleries and shops as well as the kid-friendly Science Center NEMO and the National Maritime Museum.
Personally I recommend you to invert the order. First you should go to this museum, you'll spend here about 2/3 hours and spend the rest of your day in Nemo Museum. If you go at Nemo first you will lost you in the middle of... More
Personally I recommend you to invert the order. First you should go to this museum, you'll spend here about 2/3 hours and spend the rest of your day in Nemo Museum. If you go at Nemo first you will lost you in the middle of all the activities and your lack the time to visit the museum.
Hope my comment will help you!
