Having rather overdosed on high culture, this visit was a welcome change. We were taken on a guided tour (English speaking on Saturday at 11am, Sunday at 12 noon ... and probably at other times, send them an email to check times and to book) of the Post Office, around the outside of "The ship" and of an apartment which was decorated as it would have been when new. Our guide was a Social History student and was very good at bringing the whole experience to life, talking about the emotions and experiences of the people involved. We rounded off the visit with a simple Dutch lunchtime snack in the cafe.
Definitely a recommended attraction ... and we plan to visit other buildings of the Amsterdam school of Architecture on our next visit, like the Grand Hotel Amrath for a cup of coffee
