The National Maritime Museum praises itself with a beautiful collection of sailing heritage. At the jetty outside the museum, you will find three ships you definitely should not miss during a visit: East Indiaman Amsterdam (a replica of the famous ship that got lost on its first voyage in 1749), powerhouse ss Christiaan Brunings from 1900 and the Royal Barge from 1818.
