Het Scheepvaartmuseum

What better way to pass the time before boarding an afternoon flight than to browse the Het Scheepvaartmuseum (The National Maritime Museum).  If you can’t be on the waterways, best to learn about them! IMG_1279IMG_1369IMG_1303Through interactive exhibits, we learned about the intricate artwork that adorned wooden ships as well as the types of sailing and motor yachts that traversed Dutch waters throughout history.IMG_1364 IMG_1365 IMG_1368We learned about Dutch trade routes, and whaling history.IMG_1370We explored above and below the decks of The Amsterdam, and confirmed that although ship design and building materials have evolved throughout the years, it seems that the habits of sailors are still just the same! IMG_1371IMG_1374IMG_1373
