  • 500 years of maritime history
  • Stimulating interactive exhibitions
  • Special exhibitions for children


In the National Maritime Museum you will feel the essence of the Dutch: reclaiming land from the sea, winning sea battles and trading with distant countries. Excitement, courage and adventure were all important characteristics of sailors back then…. Come aboard the replica ship of East Indiaman and experience the life of a sailor. Explore how Europeans used to go to other continents and see old atlases and maps. Go to sea, survive sea battles and bring back the best products in the interactive exhibition that the National Maritime Museum offers.

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.

Een interessante, verrassende en duidelijke tentoonstelling. Heel goed de ervaring van het op zee zijn in vijf fragmenten met een
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.

Très bien.ce musée est riche. Il y a aussi le bateau à voir.musée idéal pr les enfants. On peut y passer une journée. D ailleurs il serait bien que les tickets soient utilisables sur plusieurs jours car impossible de tout visiter en une fois.
