Ships Of The Golden Age


Ships of the Golden Age L



Have you ever wondered what it was to live like a sailor in the 17th century, at a time when Holland ruled the world with their massive trade and warships?

The answer lies at the National Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaart Museum). Follow our professional and certified guide through the wonders of this kid-friendly museum. Back in the 17th century, huge Dutch ships sailed across the oceans to join the many Dutch trading ports worldwide. From New Amsterdam (later renamed New York) to the territories in South Africa and Indonesia, the Dutch traded what they had for spices and riches from those far away worlds.

From the navigation instruments to the decorations of the boats, by way of the science of map making and ship building, you will learn all about the Maritime world here.

And the best comes last. You will be able to enter a real 17th century boat just to feel and experience what it was to be sailing for days, weeks or months without seeing land at that time.

A kid’s game booklet is also provided for your children’s pleasure to turn this experience into an unforgettable adventure.
