Het Scheepvaartmuseum

  Friday, July 17, 2015 / Stephanie / Exploration  

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! Through 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. We learned about Dutch trade routes, and whaling history.We 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!
