Het Scheepvaartmuseum (The National Maritime Museum) shows the strong connection between the maritime world and society as a whole, and more specifically the impact of this on the lives of many individuals. Read more about us as an organisation.
Water connects worlds
The organisation works towards this by focusing on three core areas:
pioneering & investigative
Our knowledge centre’s team of specialists and researchers is constantly working to further expand and enrich our pioneering collection and library. Together we develop exciting exhibitions and make our research accessible to everyone.
involved & urgent
The world faces many changes and challenges. We can use past, present, and future maritime developments to encourage debate on current issues.
entrepreneurial & connective
We are entrepreneurial by nature; we stimulate talent and take up a prominent position in society. Our open culture, with a focus on inclusivity and visitor participation, forms the foundation for productive collaborations
