We booked this guided tour through the 'Museum het Schip' and had a group of 22 persons interested in the "All-in-architecture" of the Amsterdamse School; Building exterior, interior, furniture, windows and decorations. The tour was part outside with explanations of the features that are visible outside such as the many references to the seaworld, fishes, waves, anchors, Neptune, shells, kaptains,... More

Check the dates and hours and go for a guided tour! I only saw this building from the outside and the lobby but I find it amazing. NOTE: A couple of reviews here are misplaced, and refer to Scheepvaartmuseum. Scheepvaarthuis is an ex-HQ of shipping companies, now a luxury hotel, and an architectural sight (Amsterdam School & Art deco).

Really nice place, very big and helpful staff for a guided tour. My mum enjoyed it and me and my little sister, so good for all ages, normally pretty boring for youngens but this wasn't as bad!

Go for the guided tour. It's the only advice I can give you. Even with 100 eyes, you're about to miss half of what's to see in the Shipping House (Scheepvaarthuis). They don't build these luxurious palaces anymore, not even in Dubai. The building is an architectural masterpiece of the Amsterdam School and was designed by the architects J.M. Van... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
