The Amsterdam Marine Museum was a highlight of our visit.  We went for a 1/2 day visit and spent the whole day.

The Dutch have a long and notable marine heritage.  At one time their navy rivaled the British.  They have a famous Admiral that fought off a British invasion.  Not something we hear a lot about.

The audio visual effects are excellent.  History is told through a narrator and fictional characters from various walks of life.

The history of mapping is explored.

The rise and fall of whaling.

A replica of a ship from the "Golden Age".

Ready aim fire!

Steady as she goes.
