On May 25th, the KNRM celebrates their annual Lifeboat Day, with demonstrations around the various rescue stations. At the Maritime Museum, we are celebrating Lifeboat Day with extra enthusiasm! Together with the KNRM, we are organizing a special public day: at least 25 modern and historical lifeboats will dock at the museum for the day. It promises to be a special operation, allowing visitors to walk over the specially constructed docks. A perfect outing for both young and old. With your museum admission, you will have free access to the boats at the dock. Rescuers will also be on board to answer all your questions, and you can also visit the photography exhibition 'Rescuers at sea' by top photographers Jeroen Hofman and Robin de Puy on the upper floor of the Maritime Museum.

Boat Route in and around the museum (ages 6+)

It might not surprise you: at the Maritime Museum, there are many ships to see... Both inside the museum and outside on the dock. With this boat route, you'll discover many of them! Will you join us? You can do this cheerful tour alone, but it's even more fun if you do it with a friend, a parent, or your caregiver! The Boat Route can be picked up at the Open Square.

Workshop (ages 4+)

Are you inspired by all the special lifeboats at the dock? Get creative on the open square with paper and scissors and recreate the Christiaan Brunings, the steamship of the Maritime Museum.

The conference focuses on recent scholarly research on the history of Atlantic slavery, and on the ways in which museums and educational institutions address this past. 

This conference will be held in English.

During the recent maintenance in 2023 on the bow of the replica, conducted at the museum pier, wood pressure measurements were carried out. These measurements indicate that the bowsprit is in poor condition and therefore will be repaired at Damen Shiprepair Oranjewerf. The work is expected to be completed within two weeks. We aim to have the ship back at our pier by March 25, 2024.

In 2020, the ship underwent maintenance for five months. You can see how it went in the video below.

Op 7 september 2020 ging VOC-schip Amsterdam voor vijf maanden in onderhoud. Het onderhoud is al flink gevorderd. Er is gewerkt aan het onderwaterschip, het gedeelte van de romp onder de waterlijn. Het schip is waterdicht gemaakt, de oude masten zijn verwijderd en er is een start gemaakt met het schilderwerk.
