The National Maritime Museum of Amsterdam reopened its doors in October last after four years of renovation led by Dok Architecten and Rappange & Partners, architecten. In order to give back all of its maritime atmosphere to this former 17th Century warehouse, they notably concentrated their efforts on the quays bordering the site and on the inside courtyard now covered by a glass structure. By the beginning of February over 200 000 visitors had already been counted since the reopening.
One of the exhibition is dedicated to the World-Class Port of Amsterdam, called: Ports 24/7. There you can discover how works the modern port with a twenty-metre long model that will give you an idea of how large the port area is. You have the possibility to travel vitually through the port and you will get a container’s-eye view of the area.
