    Interesting museum which focuses on Netherlands' Golden Age of the 1600s, when its prosperity was built largely on the seas.

    Great newly renovated museum. A walk through VOC ship is amazing, with a bit of imagination really brings past marine voyages into reality

    Great maritime fun whatever your age. There is a variety of things to interest you, and you can go on the replica ship outside. Beware if you have a bad back: it's definitely for small people!

    It's sort of sparse. Not much of a "museum" after their renovations but it is nice, nonetheless. Save time to visit the replica sailing ship outside.
