This representative museum was originally conceived in 1656 as a storehouse for Amsterdam’s naval fleet. Its impressive courtyard, the Open Pleyn, is canopied by a multitude of glass fragments. Come and experience one of the world’s largest maritime collections that includes globes, paintings and ship models. An underlying theme is Holland’s history of seafaring and in particular, their role as a colonial power. It’s a bonafide treasure island for lovers of maritime tales.

Kattenburgerplein 1, Amsterdam
