Amsterdam Top20

the best of the week February 08 to February 21


The National Maritime Museum (Priopass)

The National Maritime Museum (Priopass) 7

The under-appreciated maritime museum explores the role of commerce and the sea. The exhibit on the modern port of Amsterdam is interesting and who knew how important whaling once was? The museum has modern technology and historical maps, materials, photos and videos with everything in English.

The replica VOC trading ship floats at the dock in the back a testament to the time when Amsterdam was the center of the world, financing expeditions to the colonies bringing back fortunes in goods, spices and exotic goods .

€15 for adults. €7,50 for kids (5-17).   

Open daily from 9am to 5pm.
