Every year the Unseen Photography Festival takes place in Amsterdam. If you happen to be in The Netherlands this month, you cannot miss the photography exhibition at the Museum Het Schip. Even if the exhibition is small, the quality of the artworks, specially in terms of technique exploration, is outstanding. I highly recommend visiting this museum, even if you are... More

The museum at itself is interesting but if you take the tour (included in the price) you will see the treu gems. The most uniqeu postoffice and an appartment in the original style. And don't forget to wander around the other blocks in the neighbourhood. A surprising part of Amsterdam. Yes it's off the beaten track but it's the kind... More

Museum converted from an apartment building in the Spaarndammerbuurt district (just north of Westerpark), built in the style of the Amsterdam School of Expressionist architecture. Unique chance to get to grips with a form of architecture that you come across in parts of 'Dam. Activities for kids provided too.

This "schip" rocks. Amazing building that was so cutting edge, you'll have trouble believing the date. Very sophisticated tour of both the building and the context: social housing in 1919 Amsterdam , a field where Communist associations joursted against Socialists, Protestants and Catholics. Hey, ALL battles between the Church and the Left should be fought in terms of who can... More

The details of our pre-booked guided tour with a small lunch afterwards, or high tea, are posted under the Tripadvisor comments related to the Scheepvaarthuis. The Scheepvaarthuis is the Amrath 5* hotel. The Museum guided excusion consists of two parts, the outside (hope it does not rain) and the inside. The inside consists also of two parts, the tour and... More

What a lovely building from 1919. Still radical, still beautiful. The museum is well done, the tour is excellent. Chapeau!

Well, this museum is really a housing project from the Amsterdam School in the 1920s, and real people are living in this project, with a small area devoted to the public. Small, so if you go when a tourist group is there as well, you will be squeezed. Across the street is a cafe run by the museum, and again,... More

One of the things about a city like Amsterdam is that there are many famous, high profile attractions, and other, possibly more individual museums don’t get the publicity they deserve. Het Schip has nothing to do with ships. It is the name of an apartment block constructed in the early 20th Century to replace slums, and as such there is... More

This museum was well worth the visit. The manner in which the history and design is preserved is wonderful. The tour was lead by a very knowledgeable guide who was able to explain the store of het Schip and answer detailed questions. I am looking forward to visiting again in the future as the museum is continually expanding and adding... More
