The National Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaart Museum) holds one of the world's largest and most notable maritime collections including paintings, ship models, navigation instruments and sea charts. Discover 500 years of Dutch maritime history and its strong link to society of today and tomorrow.
The National Maritime Museum shows how water connects worlds. Housed in the old ‘Zeemagazijn van de Admiraliteit’ of Amsterdam, a former naval storehouse from 1656, the museum is dedicated to ships and ship transport. It illustrates the story of five hundred years of maritime history in the Netherlands and shows the sea’s influence on the Dutch culture. The collection includes ship models, paintings, world maps and various weapons. A 1990 replica of the famous VOC ship Amsterdam is moored next to the museum.
Exhibition 'Maps & Marvels' in The National Maritime Museum
The exhibition Maps & Marvels shows how Dutch seafarers in the Golden Age found their way at sea, and how these voyages defined the way Europeans saw the world.
Their discoveries of unknown territories formed the basis for increasingly refined maps. The smallest details were included, and the beautiful illustrations make each map a work of art. Het Scheepvaartmuseum’s map collection is one of the world's most prestigious collections, and tells us a lot about the voyages of the time and about the science of cartography. The centuries-old maps transport visitors to the locations that shaped Dutch history: South Africa, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, and Brazil. The spectacular wall map of Amsterdam by Pieter Bast, dating from 1597 forms the starting point. .
