Het Scheepvaartmuseum| The National Maritime Museum reviews
I am interested in history, sailing and ships so this was a really interesting place to me. Nice exhibition in a nice building. There were just a few people, because of covid, so I could enjoy the exhibition in calm.
Interesting exhibits on Dutch maritime history. Lots of variety. Nice to see boats, paintings and history of sea navigation. Lots to learn and see!
