Museum Het Schip, Amsterdam

4.5
#37 of 120 in Museums in Amsterdam
One of the city's hidden architectural gems, Museum Het Schip serves as an outstanding example of the Amsterdam School of Brick Expressionism. Designed by architect Michel de Klerk as an apartment complex, the unconventional structure resembles the outlines of a ship. The building contains 102 apartments, a meeting hall, and a former post office that now serves as a museum of architecture. The permanent exhibit features multilingual displays designed to highlight the best examples of the city's unique building style. Though located near the city center, the building complex allows you to discover the lifestyle of natives living in areas less trodden by tourist crowds.

  • We had a great tour by a superb guide (Vera I thought her name was?). She knew so many details of the buildings and information about the architecture. We had a great time!!
  • The museum was great, especially if you enjoy architecture. We went to an exhibition of Gaudí, which contained some wonderful pieces. Everything was also available for English speakers. An interesting place worth a visit.
