This museum is located in a 17th-century building previously used as a naval storage depot for the navy. You can see the exciting story of Dutch shipping and trade since the 16th Century in the Scheepvaartsmuseum. Your voyage through the museum begins downstairs at the wonderful royal barge. The museum has more than 25 rooms featuring paintings, navigation instruments, and model ships including old sailing vessels, luxury passenger ships, and container ships. You can also view scenes of sea battles and portraits of naval heroes, trace the routes to far-away places on authentic maps, peer through a periscope and visit a radar cabin.
