    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!

    Beautiful courtyard. Don't miss seeing the East Indiaman Amsterdam replica moored outside. Voyage at sea exhibit fun though makes no sense!

    It is one of the best museums I have visited in amsterdam. It is a large one and worth visiting

    Mert Tunç · April 29, 2012
  • William A.

    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.

    Not such interesting as I'd imagined un advance. Little deception.

    Лучшее здесь- посмотреть кораблик и коллекцию живописи на морскую тему, все остальное натянуто за уши

    Didaktisch ein Museum der Extraklasse. Für jede Altersklasse. Anhand einer Familie wird mit Filmprojektionen die Geschichte des goldenen Zeitalters erzählt. Auch die Geschichte des Walfangs ist cool.

    Dirk Kropp · August 10, 2014
  • Mariana O.

    Geweldig mooie interactieve tentoonstellingen voor kids! (Walvissen, gouden eeuw) aanrader! #scheepvaartmuseum

    Очень крутой музей. 15 евро за такое не жалко. Очень качественно все, интересные экспонаты. Много моделек кораблей.

    Экспозиция музея ориентирована на детей, взрослым без детей здесь будет скучно.
