Saturday’s Grand Opening concluded a week of opening festivities. Guest of honor was Queen Beatrix, who visited two exhibitions. She arrived in style on her ship De Groene Draeck (‘the Green Dragon’), “a sporting and generous gesture,” according to director-general Willem Bijleveld.

Het Scheepvaartmuseum has the second-largest maritime collection in the world. The museum pursues an active policy of increasing the knowledge of this heritage and handing it down to the next generation of experts.. The Netherlands Maritime Museum is housed in the National Naval Depot which is a former arsenal of the Dutch Navy, over 300 years old.

Het Scheepvaartmuseum is open seven days a week from 9:00 to 17:00 hrs.
