The Museum Het Schip welcomes you on board, but you'll find no sails and no drunken sailors here. Instead you'll learn the history of 20th-century social housing, take a free guided tour, see a replica of a slum dwelling and more!
The Amsterdam School style of architecture was born in 1910 and rose to significance right up to 1930 in the Netherlands. It became a vital highlight of international expressionist architecture, sometimes linked to German Brick Expressionism.
This social housing complex nicknamed The Ship was originally designed by architect Michel de Klerk. Once a primary school, it remains one of the most famous and iconic buildings of the Amsterdam School - and is just as educational.
Browse the permanent exhibition Amsterdam School, Constructed Ideals, which showcases the architecture and decorative art so pivotal in the movement.
See a number of temporary exhibitions and take a free tour through a replica of a slum dwelling and the former post office, complete with original interior. Consider yourself 'schooled'.
