Drive - from October 1 2016 till July 2 2017
To celebrate its 100th anniversary, the outstanding National Maritime Museum has put together a curious exhibition. Drive aims to explain why humans collect things by showcasing more than 350 objects, ranging from a life jacket that belonged to the ill-fated Costa Concordia to a letter signed by the uber-skilled Dutch admiral Michiel de Ruyter in 1657. The cherry on this maritime cake is the painting View of the River IJ with 's Lands Zeemagazijn, by Reinier Nooms, which is being shown for the very first time.

pas assez de temps pour tout visiter.. faut venir de bonne heure.
verrassende opname in de sloepen van de aanwezigen. Zeer behulpzaam personeel. En uiteraard de beleving van het VOC-schip
was zeer de moeite waard. Educatief een aanrader voor scholieren.
