Amsterdam (7) – At Oosterdok and Dijksgracht
Just east of Amsterdam Centraal, where Oosterdok and Dijksgracht canals meet, there is the Nemo Science Center and Het Scheepvaartmuseum (National Maritime Museum).
Het Scheepvaartmuseum is located in a former naval storehouse. “Amsterdam” is a replica of an 18th century ship which sailed between the Netherlands and the East Indies.
Inside the museum
I wish I had my wide angle lens. It would have given a better perspective of the expanse of the interior.
The glass roof of the courtyard is inspired by the compass rose on the nautical maps.
Tall ships moored inside the harbour.
Nemo Science Centre provided a great view of the city as you will see from the following four photos.
Across the bridge from the Science Center is the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
