The Best Hotels near the Maritime Museum
The replica sailing ship Amsterdam is the key attraction at the Maritime Museum (Het Scheepvaartmuseum) – a fascinating monument to the golden age of the Dutch maritime empire. Many of the best hotels near the Maritime Museum are in the Jewish Quarter and Plantage neighbourhood or on the Waterfront. On board Amsterdam, visitors can experience activities ranging from clambering below decks to firing the cannon or helping hoist cargo. Inside the three wings of the Museum building – once Amsterdam's royal arsenal – high-tech exhibits bring seafaring history to life. An amazing collection of beautifully detailed ship models and fascinating antiquarian charts and globes is another eye-opener, and the majestic location on an artificial island in the harbour is picturesque. More of the best hotels near the Maritime Museum can be found in the rejuvenated Eastern Docklands neighbourhood, beside the IJ.
