Don’t forget to visit Museum Het Schip (“The Ship”), a beautiful hidden jewel behind the Westerpark. The museum is established inside an appartment complex build between 1919-1921 in the Amsterdam School style, a style inspired by the Art Deco and Jugendstil and a reaction against...More

The Amsterdam school of architecture is not particularly exciting or cutting edge to start with. Plus, as depicted in the museum, it was quite controversial. Further, the exhibits and the tour are pretty humdrum. I have seen some wonderful architecture museums around the world and...More

The innovations of the Amsterdam School of Architecture are interesting and unique. I think only architecture nerds will appreciate the tour. The tour was interesting but I think it could be more in-depth and show more examples of this style.
