About the MuseumYou have reached one of the more interesting museums in the world, where you can experience a tour on a real boat, anchored in one of Amsterdam's canals. The museum allows a glimpse into the lives of people who decided to live on water, in house boats located in Amsterdam's canals.
The museum in 1914 was on a cargo ship that was used to transfer sand and rocks, called the Hendrika Maria. Until the 1960's the boat was used for its cargo purposes, however in 1967 it was turned into a museum and many of the original items were remained untouched.
Feel free to take photos of this interesting way of life. In the museum you will find children's toys and a cafe.
