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.

Was there after the museum closed, so I don't know about that. But the building and neighborhood are amazing. If you are interested in architecture, it is well worth the visit. Definitely a must see.
Beautiful building of the “Amsterdam School” of architecture. Take the guided tour, it is very worthwhile and gives a good overview not only of the architecture, but also the social context of moving from slums to social housing. The Amsterdam school is a sister movement to Art Nouveau, and influenced not only architecture but also art and furniture.
