    The use of Amsterdam City Card is relatively cost-effective, not only popular museums are free, but also maritime museums are free. So before the city card expired, the tickets of the Maritime Museum were successfully exchanged. Ticket is a paper bracelet, wearing this bracelet can go to the underground to brush the bracelet bar code to save bags. The museum is very large and suitable for three hours to visit here. Voice guide is free to use, pick up a corresponding scan of Chinese at will, that is, Chinese mode. But there are not many places that can be used in the whole process of voice guided tour. The guided tour only focuses on the key exhibits. Many ship models, oil paintings and maritime instruments and equipment are not explained, so they can only read the English introduction by themselves. Generally speaking, this place is worth visiting. Especially after visiting the exhibits in the main building, it is a wonderful feeling to go out and board a replica of the East Indian merchant ship and cross the Netherlands in the era of navigation. The ship also has a good view of the harbour and NEMO Science Museum in the distance.

    The Dutch Maritime Museum has a rich collection of marine souvenirs, displaying the route of early naval operations and models of ships at that time. This is a museum worth visiting, which fully exhibits the glorious navigational history of Holland, a powerful maritime country 200 years ago.

    In the golden age of the Netherlands in the 17th century, the position of sea hegemony was slightly appreciated by the Amsterdam of the Dutch East India Company anchored on the dock.

    The Maritime Museum is worth visiting. The 100-year-old Dutch naval building has been renovated into an exhibition hall. The Museum introduces the history and development of the Dutch maritime industry. There are indoor exhibition areas and outdoor exhibition areas. Several classical ships can be boarded and visited.

    The Maritime Museum is conveniently located at the Central Railway Station by bus No. 22 or No. 48. I exchanged the windmill ticket in pass for the ticket tour. On the whole, there are not many items on display in museums, but there are many experience items. For example: See the world from a bird's perspective. Experience sea voyages, wrecks, etc. Very funny.

    The museum is located in the formerly magnificent port area of Austonburg, which used to be the arsenal of the Dutch Navy. In the museum, there are many important items in the shipping history of the Netherlands and Amsterdam, ranging from ship models, a component of an old ship to tools, machines, and historic charts and globes. Tourists here can get a comprehensive understanding of the Dutch navigational age.

    The Netherlands started from the sea, so if we want to know the origin of Dutch culture, we should know the history of Dutch navigation. This museum is the scene of the Holland episode in the rise of great powers. History is very good. There are many beautiful boat models. There are also VR experiences in the big boat. There are Chinese explanatories.

    After buying Amsterdam card, the first stop, but when they left work, they were nervous when picking up their bags, using a Dutch machine, and the result could not go on. The museum did not have time to browse, and went straight to the Amsterdam inside.

    In the former glorious port area, there are some descriptions of Amsterdam's shipping history, including ship models, components, tools, various nautical charts, globes and so on. We can have a comprehensive understanding of the nautical knowledge at that time.
