The Netherlands Maritime Museum

Recommended
Formerly the Admiralty's principal warehouse, this vast building, erected on 18,000 piles, has housed the Amsterdam Maritime Museum since 1973. The collections present a fairly exhaustive overview of the Netherlands' maritime history, whether trade, fishing or warfare. The ship Amsterdam, which holds pride of place amongst the numerous moored vessels, is the jewel in the museum's crown. The three-master is a replica of the 18th Century vessel Batavia.
