Housed in the ex Navy arsenal, Amsterdam's martime museum is a gem. It concentrates, naturally enough, on the nation's two centuries as a dominant naval power. The museum features an outstanding collection of maritime art, globes both terrestrial and astral, model ships and naval equipment. Moored alongside is a replica of a Dutch East Indiaman, the Amsterdam. It's open to museum visitors and is well worth exploring.
The museum building is rectangular wth a large central, covered courtyard. It's a beautiful elegant building, well worth a vist in its own right.
To explore the museum, at least half a day is needed, but it would be easy and pleasrable to spend much more time here. There's plenty to see and admire.
