With the reopening of the renovated Scheepvaartmuseum (National Maritime Museum) last year, Amsterdam has regained one of its most important museums. Het Scheepvaartmuseum houses one of the world’s biggest collections of nautical art and artefacts, including globes, paintings and ship models. The collection is the backbone of various exhibitions about the Netherlands and the country’s elemental connection with the sea. Stimulating, interactive exhibits – with film and sound fragments – bring 500 years of maritime history to life for all ages. Make sure to visit ‘De Zeereis’ (Voyage at Sea) to experience a virtual sea battle of the 17th century. Another big attraction, both literally and figuratively, is the replica of the Dutch East Indiaman the Amsterdam, docked alongside the quay.

Amsterdam has got a new cultural hot spot. Eye, the Dutch national film institute, moved from it’s cosy historic building in Vondelpark to the waterfront on the North side of the city, opposite Amsterdam Central Station. It’s new home is quite spectacular, giving the impression a space shuttle landed on the banks of the IJ. Eye is more than a movie theatre, showing productions that span the entirety of international film history: from silent films dating back to the start of cinema to the newest digital productions. It is also an exhibition centre and organises all kinds of projects and events related to film. For children there is a special program a few days a week, with special events during the holidays. Last but not least: it is a great spot to have lunch or diner with a view, inside or outside. Pedestrians and bicyclists can hope on a free ferry behind CS to reach Eye.
