  • See the most important example of the Amsterdam School of Expressionist architecture, a style of architecture that arose in 1910 in the Netherlands

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'.

The exhibition is fantastic. But be mindful that the museum is closed on Monday and you have sold me the ticket for Monday. I was lucky that there was very helpful staff who opened the exposition for me so I had a private tour:-)
